Icy Bodies
At the Exploratorium exhibit Icy Bodies, thin shavings of dry ice, warmed by the water they are floating in, emit cold jets of carbon dioxide gas. As the jets of gas shoot out, they spin the dry ice in a spiral pattern. As water vapor in the nearby air condenses into clouds, the pattern is revealed.
