Fluid dynamic in impact events

Wow Nik what an odd combination of threads you've combined.

Hidden within this is some of the most compelling evidence to
offset conventional explanations of crater features by showing
that solid-object-impact needs to consider other mechanisms
to get the detail found in crater appearance here in earth.

Everyone should take a close look at Dennis Cox's coverage
of thermal-airburst impact structures:

He takes fluid dynamics in a direction that will certainly be long lived. d...z

So my question pertains to applying the electric aspect in a commercial application. I noticed from the first comment in this thread a link to 'A Guide to Snowflakes' from Cal-Tech. Near the bottom of the page they include "snowflakes" created by snow making machines. They seem to be nothing more than frozen blobs, if anybody out there enjoys skiing or snowboarding as I do, the difference between the friction of real and fake snowflakes is apparent. So, the question is, is there a way to apply an electric field or charge to water in such a way as to produce more natural snowflakes with snow making machines. Or is this "problem" unsolvable due to the time needed for the flakes to grow?
