Nearly had a similar reaction after working on a really frustrating lab...

You know what? If they passed all that pressurized liquid through some kind of turbine, they would have gotten a surprisingly good distance

Not funny, but wow. Just wow. http://vimeo.com/12185093 (Needs HD, fullscreen, lights off.)

"Two days to set up, and then six months to render, resulted in around forty 1.9GB uncompressed .AVI files."

Wow. This is the longest Mandelbrot zoom I've ever seen. Thank you.

I liked the footnote explaining the zoom ratio of the movie:

"The final magnification of the Mandelbrot fractal is 6.066e+228 (2760)

want some perspective?

1E6 Vancouver Island
1E9 Jupiter’s radius
1E12 Earth’s orbit
1E18 distance to Alpha Centauri
1E21 Milky Way galaxy
1E30 large doesn’t cover it!
1E42 size of electron to the universe

1E228 incomprehensibly big…but we did it!

For the record, 1 to 6e228 is like expanding a proton to 70000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000000000 times the size of the visible universe. (i.e. mindrape)
(Proton has 1 femtometer diameter, universe has 93 billion light year diameter)

If you were actually traveling into the fractal, you would be moving faster than the speed of light."



This reminds me, a few years ago, I spent quite some time exploring the Mandelbrot set myself. It was fascinating. I used some freeware for this, I'm not sure, but I think it was Fractal Explorer.

Me too... and I just came back to the subject because I found out that in the meantime they conquered the 3rd dimension, as far as fractal algorithms go. Check out some of those mind blowing Mandelboxes and Mandelbulbs on Youtube:
