I've always heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Kenneth Libbrecht of CalTech demonstrates this with his photos of snow crystals (aka, snowflakes) that â€œfell to earth in northern Ontario, Alaska, Vermont, the Michigan Upper Peninsula, and the Sierra Nevada mountains of California.â€
Mr. Libbrecht used a specially-designed snowflake photomicroscope to capture the basic shapes of snow and to show their lifecycle, if you will.
Implications - The beauty of nature has greatly been under-discussed by mass culture in the past. However, with the rise in the environmental movement, nature is receiving a resurgence of praise by many. Businesses that promote the beauty of nature and embrace green initiatives will continue to be regarded as socially beneficial and vital.
