+ - High-speed camera grabs first 3D shots of untouched snowflakes->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Researchers have developed a camera system that shoots untouched flakes "in the wild" as they fall from the sky. By grabbing a series of images of the tumbling crystals—its exposure time is one-40,000th of a second, compared with about one-200th in normal photography—the camera is revealing the true shape diversity of snowflakes. Besides providing beautiful real-time 3D snowflake photographs from a ski resort in Utah, the goal is to improve weather modeling. More accurate data on how fast snowflakes fall and how their shapes interacts with radar will improve predictions of when and where storms will dump snow and how much."

It is masked but always present. I don't know who built to it. It came before the first kernel.
