Mathematics in the Field

Most complex crop circle ever discovered in British fields
You may recall that back in April as I was flying south from Washington, I snapped pictures of what appear to be wide fields of pie charts, and I asked if anyone could identify them. AP did, saying they were crops that had been planted in such a design. He was correct.
Take a look at this picture, a crop planted in a circle that is a coded representation of pi to the 10th significant figure. Truly amazing.

The formation, measuring 150ft in diameter, is apparently a coded image representing the first 10 digits, 3.141592654, of pi.

It is has appeared in a field near Barbury Castle, an iron-age hill fort above Wroughton, Wilts, and has been described by astrophysicists as “mind-boggling”.

Michael Reed, an astrophysicist, said: “The tenth digit has even been correctly rounded up. The little dot near the centre is the decimal point.
