    Here’s a question that I’ll probably get pn’d on… How (and or why ) do snow flakes grow in geometric fractals …. how does one water molecule “know” how to place itself so that it’ll be in proportion to it’s opposite/counterpart ? And to the first Arsehole that say’s is part of dog’s divine plan/mystery (or any other pseudo theological-science) : you will now and forever have all internets stripped from you.

    The six-fold symmetry of a snow crystal ultimately derives from the hexagonal geometry of the ice crystal lattice. But the lattice has molecular dimensions, so it’s not trivial how this nano-scale symmetry is transferred to the structure of a large snow crystal. The way it works is through faceting. No long-range forces are necessary to form facets; they appear simply because of how the molecules hook up locally in the lattice (see Crystal Faceting for how this works). From faceting we get hexagonal prisms, which are large structures with six-fold symmetry. Eventually arms sprout from the corners of a prism,… Read more »

    Thank you! I’ve been wondering this myself and have been too lazy to wiki it up.

    Snowflake in a hot world
    Don’t let them get to you
    Don’t let them tell you
    You’re all the same

    Snowflake in a hot world
    Light inside the dark
    You lonely little spark
    Too frozen to feel
    So fleeting and so real

    Yay ice – pretty crystals of nature.
