I intend to show new content daily on this landing page: a book recommendation, a song, a biography of a writer or scientist, a quote, a joke... For today, I propose:

The Feynman Prime

The year 2018 marks the centennial anniversary from the birth of the American theoretical physicist Richard P. Feynman (1918 — 1988).

Fermat's Library found a very ingenious way of honouring his personality by finding a 5000 digit prime number, made of 1 and 8 only which, written in a tabular (square) form, paints an ASCII portrait of Feynman.

The number can be found here, but if the resolution of the device you are viewing it is not big enough, the image will not be evident. So I embed it below.
