If you’re a mathematics person, this is an article about a really cool theory about prime numbers that has finally been proven.
If you’re a people person, this is a story of a guy who couldn’t get a job in academia, who had to work at Subway at one point, but kept doing what he loves, and now he’s gonna have a theorem in his name to last forever. Pretty cool. My fave quotes from the article:
Zhang said he feels no resentment about the relative obscurity of his career thus far. “My mind is very peaceful. I don’t care so much about the money, or the honor,” he said. “I like to be very quiet and keep working by myself.”
“There are a lot of chances in your career, but the important thing is to keep thinking.”
