Submission + - Travelling Salesman - A Movie About P=NP->

mikejuk writes: A movie that features science and technology is always welcome, but is it not often we have one that focuses on computer science. Travelling Salesman is just such a rare movie. As you can guess from its name, it is about the Travelling Salesman problem, more precisely about the P=NP question. Written and directed by Timothy Lanzone, and produced by Fretboard Pictures, it should premiere on June 16.
As the blurb to the movie trailer says:
"Travelling Salesman is an intellectual thriller about four of the world's smartest mathematicians hired by the U.S. government to solve the most elusive problem in computer science history — P vs. NP. The four have jointly created a "system" which could be the next major advancement for humanity or the downfall of society."
You can begin to see that there is scope for some drama, but rather than explain in any more detail it is better to just watch the trailer.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
