NASA: Why All Snowflakes Have Six Sides

In this video, created by NASA, you'll see beautiful CG models of snowflakes, and my snowflake photos - as examples of real snow crystals.

Words can't express how i'm proud of this publication! From my childhood, space and Sci-Fi remains one of my main points of interest, and i always feel deep respect to NASA, main space explorer and researcher.


On NASA site, you'll find this video, plus two separated CG animations, free to download.

Also, i've created an YouTube channel today. By now, it contains only playlist with several snowflake-related videos, but i planned to add more interesting content in the future.

Here you'll find all snowflake videos in my blog.
