Believe-It-Or-Not, It's Math (x2): Numberphile and Science Circus

If you're new to Numberphile, here's one of our favorite videos, featuring computer scientist Ron Rivest. The large number known as "RSA-129" posed a challenge experts said would take 40 quadrillion years to solve — but only took 17 years to crack. (Dr. Rivest will also join us at the NMF Live Online Weekend in April.) You can find more juicy Numberphile videos on YouTube!
Juggler Rhys Thomas dazzles and delights with the math and physics of juggling. What surprises will he bring? We'll find out!
