Noodles and Atoms

This particular video has definitely made the rounds on the blogs before but it's worth noting for those who haven't seen it: chef Kin Jing Mark divides a large strand of noodle into 4096 individual noodles by folding a noodle 12 times! This segment was taken from a 1987 PBS Series titled "The Ring of Truth". Also on the that show: another segment about atoms from Julia Childs. The Ring of Truth is a product of Philip Morrison, the same man who brought you the popular "Powers of Ten" video.
