Animated Penrose Tiling

I am strolling around in the world of 2D Euclidean geometry. What can be so interesting about something -that- "simple"? This is an area of mathematics which is deeply connected to human imagination and art. Think Escher. I came across a YouTube video I would like to share. Worth the watch.

An animation of the celebrated Penrose non periodic tiling made with Povray, realized at the Department of Mathematics and Physics, Catholic University, Brescia (Italy). By Maurizio Paolini and Alessandro Musesti.

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.)
