Hilbert's paradox of the Grand Hotel

Last week I saw a documentary about the German mathematician David Hilbert. This very interesting documentary had some nice mathematical problems that seem impossible to solve, but when thought through there always was a little loophole.

A very nice one is The paradox of the Grand Hotel

If you are a bit into maths, this really is stuff to read.

The prove of The Last Theorem of Fermat is my next goal… :-)
