Scientist Ken Libbrecht has an unusual hobby: He looks at snowflakes under a microscope and takes photographs of what he sees. His amazing photos reveal each snowflake to be a crystal of clear ice. Discover beautiful snow crystals that look like flowers, ferns, and stars, and unusual flakes that look like pencils, needles, and even wheel axles.
As a scientist, Dr. Libbrecht tries to understand how things work in the natural world. Why do snowflakes form such different shapes? How do they grow? Why are no two alike? Join him as he answers these questions and more. Learn the secret life of a snowflake!
