From the Snowflake Preservation Society...

[Links fixed] This is the coolest thing I've seen since Sunday.

Ever wanted to catch a snowflake and keep it forever? You can. This is a photograph of a snowflake that fell in January 1979, but it isn’t a 27-year-old photo. It is a recent shot of a snowflake that’s been sitting in chemist Tryggvi Emilsson’s desk for 27 years, locked in a drop of that miracle of modern chemistry we call superglue.


And I gotta learn that on April 1. Sheesh. C'mon December, I've got snowflakes to entomb.

(Things like this are why I go to Metafilter)

For a second I thought you could actually keep a snowflake forever with a pic. Crazy me...
