Geometrical visualisation of a 4D shape from a 3D Perspective - The Tesseract
Hypercubes are shapes with n dimensions where n is greater than the 3 dimensions of a normal cube. The Tesseract, or the 4-cube, is a 4 dimensional hypercube.
where n is the dimensional number, in any hypercube:
vertices = 2^n
edges = n(2^n-1 )
faces = 2^n-3(n-1)n
This month is the 45th anniversary of the first moon landing and NASA will celebrate with many events to mark the occasion during the next two weeks.
During the event, NASA will share photos and video footage of the moon landing, both on their website and on NASA TV. In addition, NASA TV will broadcast some panel discussions with scientists and astronauts about the future of space exploration and other interesting topics.
There are also two NASA Social events, one in Virginia and one in Florida, for those interested in signing up to attend. The deadline to register is July 15th at 5 PM EDT.
For the whole lineup of events, visit this NASA press release and follow the hashtags #NextGiantLeap and #Apollo45.

Heres a derivation of Euler’s formula, I know the resulting identity is all over tumblr but not many people realize the derivation is relatively simple. All that is required is a knowledge of Taylor Series Expansions and it’s basic algebra from there.
I also included the fact that i^i is a real and gave its decimal approximation because its one of those things that twists the mind a little.
Woah. The proof of i^i is actually really cool. Math rocks.
