Dragon Curve and Jurassic Park!

Here are two fantastic videos about the Dragon Curve from Numberphile!

The Dragon Curve is a little known fractal that is very beautiful and mysterious. It can be obtained by simply folding a piece of paper!

This video very aptly and clearly describes the Dragon Curve, which can be found in the book of Jurassic Park. (Many people have watched Jurassic Park, but few have read the book, hence the Dragon Curve is unknown to many.)

Legendary Computer Scientist Don Knuth introduces his beautiful "Dragon Curve" sculpture in his home. And also a moral to be learnt: It's ok to make mistakes, just learn from them! "Err and err and err again, but less and less and less." — Piet Hein. How is this quote of wisdom related to the Dragon Curve? Watch the video to find out!

Lastly, just a sneak peek of the upcoming Jurassic World Official Trailer! Jurassic World will be released in 3D by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015. Excited?
