Albert Einstein's birthday is Pi Day.
Beyond denoting the date that coincides with 3.14, March 14 also marks another big day: Albert Einstein’s birthday. That’s right: On March 14, 1879, Albert Einstein was born at his family's home in Ulm, Germany. Quite the serendipitous birthday, no?
Pi goes way, way deeper than 3.14.
Pi, PiDay.org explained, has been calculated to over “one trillion digits beyond its decimal point.” It is both an “irrational and transcendental number,” meaning its digits will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. However, in practice, just a few digits of pi are needed for typical mathematical calculations–which is why you usually see the mathematical constant represented as 3.14159.
