What’s a fractal?

Just one of the main building blocks of the universe. Known as ‘God’s thumbprint,’ these simple math formulas reveal the intricate recursive patterns found within nature, yet still remain one of science’s best-kept secrets. Follow along as we explore the contours, curiosities and creator of this beautiful wonder of the computer age.

"A fractal is a way of seeing infinity." —Benoit B. Mandelbrot

There was once an entire world invisible not only to the human eye, but also to most microscopes. That is, until the invention of the Scanning Tunneling Microscope by Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer. This innovation created a computer-aided instrument that could scan surfaces at the atomic level and see things invisible to the naked eye (and most other microscopes) like viruses or a sequence of your DNA.
