I dont know if this is true or not, maybe im just behind the times and been under a rock... but i heard that the end digit of pi was calcualted. Anyone else heard that or is it gibberish?

Pi cannot be calculated... so I think it's gibberish unless someone finds a reputable report on it.

better question: who wasted all that time and money to find out? or WHY?

^ Lets say you are making the calculation for a interplanetary spaceship's course.

you need you trigonometry to be as precise as possible to avoid being pulled by a gravity field or missing the planet you wanted to reach.

I'd also do if for fun.

some religions are based on teh fact that life is a perfect circle, if the perfect calculation for a circle was found that would be their link to god, or whatever.

pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and as such, will continue non-ending since it's an irrational number... if you really must know, the answer is 42

I guess it could have some uses.

the religion one is problably more likely than anything else, though I was always under the impression that finding god was a not a scientific thing in all religions. the perfect circle was more of a spiritual thing than anything else.

but people were also pretty sure the speed of light was a constant. turns out it IS variable depending on certain conditions.

the speed of light in a vacuum is constant
