Mandelbrot fractals in 3D

The laptops we use today are extremely powerful machines if you measure them against the standards of a decade ago. In these days producing ( rendering ) Mandelbrot fractals was hard work for any computer. Also, Mandelbrot fractals were 2D, by definition, case closed. Experimenting with '3d-type-of-Mandelbrots' was impossible due to the limitations of the hardware. A lot has happened since then. - Daniel White created a website about the topic, called 'The unravelling of the Real 3D Mandelbulb" where he explains the interesting ( and surprising ! ) history of 3D Mandelbrots.

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.)
