In Honor of Benoit Mandelbrot


Mandelbrot Fractal Set from teamfresh.

Benoit Mandelbrot died on Thursday. The man was a legend. He singlehandedly created a whole new branch of mathematical study - fractals - which show up everyday. This is an incredible animation of the famous Mandelbrot Set, with a high speed zoom. The final zoom is 10214, a number so ridiculous it's beyond comprehension.

Warning: may be browser-breaking; the video is giant.
