How Unraveling A Two Thousand Year Old Mystery Unraveled the Universe
The great discovery that no one wanted to makeIt's the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, and Euclidean geometry has been profoundly influential for centuries. One mystery remains, however: Euclid's fifth postulate has eluded for two thousand years all attempts to prove it. What happens when three nineteenth-century mathematicians realize that there is no way to prove the fifth postulate and that$0.99
