A snow crystal has been successfully collected on to a scanning electron microscope (SEM) stub in central Greenland. It was preserved at liquid-nitrogen temperature for 5 months, prior to examination in the SEM. This is believed to be the first time a snow crystal has been observed directly in the SEM and offers some new experimental methods for understanding crystals and their chemistry.
