Happy PI Day From Huntsville Alabama
National PI Day March 14, 2015
Huntsville, Alabama boasts that it is the Rocket City...NASA's Marshal Space Flight Center located here might have a little to do with that! And I'm guessing that more than a few of the thousands of engineers who call Huntsville home and work for NASA or one of the many high tech NASA contractors are familiar with and celebrate National PI Day.
Mathematicians around the globe are celebrating National PI Day March 14, 2013...no, not Blueberry or Apple...the mathematical constant variety, 3.141592653589732384.............and on............and on............! I read about one website that posted the value of PI out to one million places...poor little website crashed. Another website displays a more manageable ten thousand digits.
What is PI you say? Come on, it really hasn't been that long since high school algebra has it (kids are probably exposed to it in 1st or 2nd grade these days)? Anyway, PI is a real number that is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi is used in all sorts of exciting ways from cryptology to figuring out how long a string would be if it was suspended one foot off the surface of the earth over its entire circumference. I'm fairly sure it comes in handy when shooting guys into space, distance traveled and where they're going to land when they decide to come back home...probably a few other things as well.
Anyway, National PI Day is being celebrated today because it's March 14...3/14 the first three digits of PI. Please don't whack yourself on the forehead if you are reading this post tomorrow and completely miss out on the celebration because PI is also celebrated on July 22...I don't suppose anyone would care to guess why the 22 of July? Okay, I can feel your anxiousness so I'll just spill the beans...the fraction 22/7 is an approximation of PI...now don't you feel better? No? Then go have a slice of Apple PI!
