Margaret Wertheim egy projektet vezet, amelyben egy matematikus által feltalált horgolási technikával újraalkotják a korallzátonyok élőlényeit — ez által magasztalva a korallzátony, és mélybúvárkodás csodáit a korall létrejöttében rejlő hiperbolikus geometriává.

By masterminding a project to model a coral reef armed only with crochet hooks, Margaret Wertheim hopes to bring some of the most complicated mathematical models embodied in our universe into the minds (and hands) of the masses. Full bio
