Science of Snowflakes

A profile of Kenneth Libbrecht, the man who wrote the book on snowflakes (literally, as BoingBoing points out).

Over the course of his research, Libbrecht’s work has grown to encompass art and science. He’s produced both scientificpapers and hundreds of beautiful photos of natural snowflakes (which he’s published in severaldifferentbooks and had featured on U.S. postage stamps), and also devised ingenious ways to artificially grow snowflakes in a lab to study their formation in microscopic detail.
