Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

The film Particle Fever officially hits VOD, available to watch on Netflix and others.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jesse-damiani/particle-fever-hits-vod-h_b_5585844.html

This summer may pack plenty of silver-screen explosions, but how many of them tell you what you’re made of? In the heat of the blockbuster season we find an altogether different kind of explosion: Particle Fever, the definitive documentary on the Large Hadron Collider and our search for the Higgs boson (the “God particle”), premieres today on all major VOD platforms, including Netflix.
For its outwardly complicated subject, the documentary takes a clean, narrative focus, centering on the lives and personalities of its protagonists — six scientists working in different arms of the experiment — letting the practical information and tech specs flow from the human vantage point. You rarely find complex science presented in such a compelling, approachable way; we’re talking, after all, about the biggest, most expensive, and arguably most important scientific undertaking in human history, a machine that synthesizes the expertise of thousands of the world’s leading minds in particle physics. The result is an exciting glimpse into this moment of discovery: our attempts to discover what we’re made of, where we come from, and where we’re heading.
