There’s a great short intro to infinity from BBC’s Horizon (hey, what’s one hour compared to forever?).

The BBC un-YouTubed it since I originally posted, so here’s a different link, courtesy of AT reader ‘whizmd’:

I love these eager, brilliant Brits shaking their heads and giggling in helpless amazement at how their calculations turn out. Yes, it’s heady stuff. Could mathematicians be the new theologists?

May one hope for that?

Reblogged this on How and Why?.

Your infinity video is not working. However BBC video on infinity can be found on youtube.

Damn, looks like it’s been taken down. I can only find a two-minute promo on YouTube. If you find the whole hour-long program, please do send me the link. Thanks — L.

Maybe this is the one for 59 minutes

Infinite thanks!
