First Friday Fractals

Say that 10 times fast. After that, head down to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History's Planetarium (1801 Mountain NW) for its super-successful First Friday Fractals. A fractal is a geometric shape that can be split into smaller, equal parts—theoretically, forever. Picture a snowflake or a crystal. It just so happens these mathematical wonders look absolutely amazing on a big screen, like a Fear and Loathing-inspired acid trip without the nasty side effects or legal run-ins. The visual escapade plays today at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for children ages 3 to 12. These do sell out regularly. For more information and to secure tickets, visit fractalfoundation.org.

The World’s Largest Fractal Triangle

In celebration of Pi Day (3.14), Albuquerque’s Fractal Foundation constructed the biggest Sierpinski Triangle Fractal in the world.

About 40 volunteers got together in the 505 to assemble 4,036 triangles made by children from around the world. They only needed 2,187 to make a seventh-order fractal triangle, which would be 96 feet per side. But there were so many submissions, they just kept building.

Next year, they’ll push it even further with an eighth-order fractal triangle, which is a whopping 196 feet per side and needs 6,561 triangles.

Teachers and parents can mail completed fractal triangles to:

Fractal Foundation, 2917 Campus Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106
