Dimensions - Documentary movie about mathematics

Dimension Two - Hipparchus shows us how to describe the position of any point on Earth with two numbers… and explains the stereographic projection: how to draw a map of the world.

Dimension Three – M.C. Escher talks about the adventures of two-dimensional creatures trying to imagine what three-dimensional objects look like.

The Fourth Dimension – Mathematician Ludwig Schläfli talks about objects that live in the fourth dimension… and shows a parade of four-dimensional polytopes, strange objects with 24, 120 and even 600 faces



Buy The DVD! If you like the movie.

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
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.)
