The End of a Fractal



Scientists were mystified when a fractal calculation abruptly stopped, revealing the first known appearance of the end of a fractal pattern. Strikingly beautiful, the magnificent discovery appears after a couple minutes of the gif above.

The discovery is expected to go a long way toward discovering the end of Pi, the biggest number, and where exactly the sidewalk does end.
