Counting from Infinity: Yitang Zhang and the Twin Prime Conjecture   In April, 2013 Yitang "Tom" Zhang, a virtually unknown mathematician working as an adjunct professor at the University of New Hampshire, submitted a paper to the Annals of Mathematics. Zhang had made an important breakthrough in Number Theory by solving the Twin Prime Conjecture (pairs of prime numbers that differ by two). His work, Small Gaps Between Primes, was immediately recognized as an important mathematical break- through, and Zhang became an instant celebrity - a role for which he was unprepared. The film documents Zhang's quiet perseverance amidst adversity, and his preference for thinking and working in solitude. Zhang's story is interwoven with a history of the Twin Prime Conjecture as told by several mathematicians.G

The Crowd & The Cloud  "Citizens + Scientists"  Citizen scientists track air and water pollution at fracking sites in windswept Wyoming and five other states, using simple but science-based techniques developed by the "Bucket Brigade." On idyllic East Coast trout streams, volunteers from Trout Unlimited monitor water quality regularly, generating baseline data that will prove invaluable in the event of future pollution events. Community members connected with professional researchers to tackle Flint's drinking water crisis and now the same is happening in Philadelphia and other cities. In China, citizens use government data and a unique mobile app to report environmental crimes. When citizens and scientists partner, it's a win-win for all concerned. Part 2 of 4G
