### Base conversion

Example base 10 to base 3 conversion:

What is 777 in base 3 ?

We repeatedly divide by 3 and store the remainder until 0 is left:
777 = 3 * 259 + 0
259 = 3 * 86 + 1
86 = 3 * 28 + 2
28 = 3 * 9 + 1
9 = 3 * 3 + 0
3 = 3 * 1 + 0
1 = 0 * 3 + 1

Now the number is equal to the stored remainders in reverse order:
1001210

Let's check if the value in base 10 is indeed 777:
1 * 729 = 729
0 * 243
0 * 81
1 * 27 = 27
2 * 9 = 18
1 * 3 = 3
0 * 1
Finally we add 729 + 27 + 18 + 3 = 777.

To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
