To Infinity and Beyond!

Presentation.

So I did a project on infinity, and more specifically the how and why of the sizes of infinity. Fun fact, infinities come in many different sizes. Georg Cantor, cool guy extraordinaire, did some research into infinity and was like “nah, they ain’t the same size”. Of course, infinity is not a number, it is a set, and cardinality describes the size of a set. These infinite sets are designated with a cardinality using Aleph, a special character, and a subscript:

If you want further reading on the different sizes of infinity I did like this website:
