The Chemistry of Snowflakes

Ever wonder how snowflakes form? Bytesize Science shares this interesting video on the chemistry of snowflakes…

The two things I’m most amazed by:

  1. A snowflake often starts as tiny grain of dust floating in the clouds. When water sticks to it and freezes, a snowflake is born.
  2. While the saying, “No two snowflakes are alike” may be true for larger snowflakes, it’s actually not true for smaller snowflakes that fall to Earth early on in the process.

Watch the video for more!
