Mexican Solves Spherical Aberration

Recommended Posts

Mexican physicist Rafael Gonzalez has found the solution to spherical aberration in optical lenses, solving the 2,000-year-old Wasserman-Wolf problem that Isaac Newton himself could not solve.

 

Now would be a good time to get a Fujian 35mm, f1.7 -- before they all become as clinically sharp as Summicrons!

What does him being Mexican have anything to do with it?

It is the nationality of the physicist who found the solution to a long standing optical problem.

maybe tupp is from mexico and is proud that it is a mexican that solves this.

I'm not from Mexico, but no doubt some Mexicans are proud of this significant accomplishment.

Looks like the quality of PetaPixel's journalism has improved. When I stopped reading their site, it was because they would merely post links to other sites/videos with little commentary and click baitey titles. 

Now they're writing gems like 

"Afterwards, the duo ran a simulation and calculated the efficacy with 500 rays, and the resulting average satisfaction for all examples was 99.9999999999%. Which, of course, is great news for gear reviewers on YouTube, as they will still be able to argue about the 0.0000000001% of sharpness difference among lens brands." 

Also have a look at the algebraic formula in the article. Holy smokes.
