As water hardens into ice, the molecules begin to form an irregular crystalline structure (google if you don't know what this means), so yes, any form of ice (including a snowflake) would appear to be irregular and porous if you zoom in far enough.

rough surface could be imperfections in the metallic coating. I doubt ice is that rough (porous too?? looks porous)

Not to be a Negative Nancy, but couldn't they have just done the same thing with an ice cube once you get past a certain point of recognition?

(Nerd, sorry) Nah, the reason they grow into a perfect crystal form is that they have space to grow into, as opposed to being compressed. Like quartz crystals will grow into a geode or void with perfect form, but not so in a body of granite.

I'm guessing these pictures were taken with a scanning tunneling electron microscope, Those are pretty incredible machines themselves.

Not sure crakr, from the magnification, could just be an SEM (scanning electron microsope).

Hehe, I like it.

@beccab86-
maybe, but I'm guessing that the micro-structure of an ice cube would look different. After the shape of a snowflake doesn't come from a mold- it is the product of the arrangement of the frozen water molecules.
