GK: Time now for Science Corner and Dr. Steven Pinkerton, from the Department of Comparative Crystallization at New York University, who is here with late-breaking news. Dr. Pinkerton-----

TR: Yes, today at our Department we've discovered two snowflakes that are, in fact, exactly alike.

GK: But that's impossible.

TR: I know, that's what we've thought, up until today and then we found these two and we've subjected them to micro-analysis with a spectometer and they're exactly the same.

GK: Maybe it was one snowflake that split.

TR: Two separate snowflakes. Identical.

GK: Where are they?

TR: I brought them in my refrigerated study box, which is right here.

GK: Wow. So this is a first.

TR: Nobody has ever seen this before.

GK: What does this mean, Dr. Pinkleton?

TR: This discovery sets the foundation of modern science on its head. This is bigger than the world being round. I think it's going to transform every aspect of the way we understand life.

GK: Amazing. So you're going to show us the snowflakes right here on the show?

TR: I am, yes. I am going to open up the box and (SFX) using this laser microscope, which projects onto the screen you see behind you on the stage--there we go... and now I'll just focus in here, and--- (MOTORIZED LENS) Focusing there. (MOTORIZED LENS). Huh. I'm having a hard time getting the snowflakes to focus. (FOCUS SFX). What's the problem?

GK: It looks to me like they melted, Dr. Pinkerton.

TR: Melted?

GK: Well, it's warm in here and you opened the box.

TR: They're gone?

GK: I think so. Did you take photographs of them?

TR: Of the snowflakes?

GK: Yes.

TR: I was in a hurry to get down here to announce our discovery and-----

GK: So you don't have pictures.

TR: I don't. I spent twenty years looking for these snowflakes and I guess I'll just have to get back and look for some more.

GK: Okay, good luck, Dr. Pinkerton, from the Department of Comparative Crystallization at NYU, and that's all the time we have for Science Corner.
