Scientists discover snowflake identical to one which fell in 1963

Scientists were today able to dispel the age-old belief that no two snowflakes are the same, using state of the art microscopy and by catching flakes as they fell in specially designed equipment while sitting at a table outside a pub in Norwich.



The team of researchers, backed by a £20m grant, were able to make an identical match to the famous Bentley flake, photographed 47 years ago by amateur snowflakeologist Wilson Bentley.

you know, you got a point, he never cited his source for the story.

and it's not that link either, three sentences of obvious statements do not a news article make, unless you work for fox news.

hell, beyond that, the very bottom one on that page is (possibly) a christmas ornament and at least metallic painted.

I located the source of the picture:
http://www.newsbiscuit.com/2010/12/0...-fell-in-1963/
lol, laughable.

I went to the supposedly official bentley snowflake website. I can't find that snowflake anywhere on that site.
http://snowflakebentley.com/

I think this story is totally bogus.

the tagline of that website makes me wonder if it's more spoofing new articles than reporting on any:

"the news before it happens" really now? where's my time machine you stinge?

even i can tell they're not identical. close, but not on the money. will give allowance that differences could be due to one pix being old and a black and white, but still ...
