This week yielded a lot of exciting discoveries. From being able to climb walls to discovering another planet in our solar system, these three findings all proved that scientific revelations can be just as thrilling as they are educational.
First up: a finding that's especially sweet for anyone suffering from the bitter cold this time of year. A U.K. mathematician has determined the exact steps needed to build the perfect snowman.
USA Today reports some pretty intense math equations were involved, but James Hind was able to determine that the ultimate snowman would be 5 feet 3 inches tall, be made of three balls of snow, have a carrot nose, have both arms and legs, and be outfitted in a scarf, gloves and a hat.
