An astrophysicist took issue with Disney’s poster for Frozen 2 and everyone made the same joke
Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson isn’t happy with the poster for Disney’s imaginatively titled Frozen sequel, Frozen 2.
So he did what any self-respecting big brain does, he went on Twitter to ask them to change it.
Dear @Disney, You got it right the first time. Water crystals have hexagonal “six-fold” symmetry.

And we’re rather glad he did because it prompted no end of very funny takedowns, most of which, to be fair, were making the same joke. Fortunately for us, it was a good one.

It’s not a snowflake. It’s a vegvisir (an ancient Norse compass) that’s in the *style* of a snowflake.
Considering the purpose of the vegvisir was to help the bearer find their way through rough weather, it makes sense. Elsa can create an eternal winter, remember? pic.twitter.com/gsDqcuUXY4

Neil, it's not "Ih ice" (hexagonal), but probably "II ice" (orthorhombic), formed at lower temperatures due to Elsa's powerful cooling capabilities.
