I was looking up information on fractals, which I find to be fascinating, and I came across a stunning seven minute zoom video of the burning ship fractal(my personal favorite fractal), and I was so impressed that I wanted to share it.

Take a look: Video

I love how at the very end it zooms in on what(as far as the author can tell) is an exact copy of the whole fractal. I wonder if the burning ship fractal is connected? I couldn't find the answer on the internet.

For those who don't know, the burning fractal is an infinitely complex shape that arises out of a very simple mathematical function(like all fractals). I thought it was better to post this in the art forum than math, though.

Cool. And 10^100 zoom? Holy crap that's a lot.
