Big Issues: Infinity and beyond.

We look at the different conceptions of 'infinity' that exist in mathematics, science and philosophy.

We ask whether it is possible for physical infinities to arise in the universe and whether a machine could ever complete an infinite number of tasks in a finite time. And if so, what would it mean? The answers to these questions will take us from Zeno’s paradox to the beginning of the universe and the centre of black holes.
