M7133: Knots and Links in Spark! 2013 (Mar. 16, 2013)
It may seem obvious that you can't take two separate rings and link them together without breaking one of the rings first. Knot theory, which investigates tangled-up loops in space, is a powerful tool to prove facts like this one. As we explore knot theory, we'll draw lots of fun diagrams on the way! (Note: it is possible to link two rings in 4 dimensions. Is this how magicians do it...?)
