It all started with a tiny computer glitch...

Sometime in 1961, Professor Edward Lorenz was entering values into a powerful computer software used for simulating weather patterns. The software required twelve variables each representing critical factors like temperature and wind speed. After finishing his task, professor Lorenz left his office to get coffee while the machine continued to run the values. When he finally returned, the result he saw on the screen changed his perspective of science.
