Hi there, mathematicians. I assume you've heard the big news about E8 by now:

248-dimension maths puzzle solved
An international team of mathematicians has detailed a vast complex numerical "structure" which was invented more than a century ago.

Mapping the 248-dimensional structure, called E8, took four years of work and produced more data than the Human Genome Project, researchers said.

Lie groups aren't a specialty of mine, so I'll hold off writing about this (for now), but you might be interested to read what a few other are saying.
