Video: The God of Mathematics – Georg Cantor’s Infinities

The fascinating and tragic story of Georg Cantor, maybe the greatest mathematician of the 19th century, who came up with the Continuum Hypothesis that will unravel the mysteries of infinity. Only Cantor had a little secret – he thought god was speaking to him and saw himself as his messenger.
