3D model reveals an inside look at a melting snowflake Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at the first ever 3D model of a melting snowflake.
The visualization and accompanying new research was developed by scientist Jussi Leinonen from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and will help improve weather precipitation models and future climate models.
Scientists have understood the structure of snowflakes for some time, but only recently have begun to fully recreate the melting process. Thethree-dimensional model ofmelting snowflakes created by Jussi Leinonen from NASA is depicting a snowflake not longer than 1/2-inch. Set the first arm aside, and repeat with the other 5 squares. When you’re finished, tape the bottoms of 2 of the snowflake arms together.
Also the landforms are all hidden by the North Sea’s bottom-muds, but new survey work has traced their outline in remarkable 3D detail. 3D model reveals an inside look at a melting snowflake as shown above in the video shows Researchers have uncovered a previously unknown substructure in bone tissue using a new X-ray technique.
