Funbers Root 2

Time for the next number in the Funbers series with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and BBC Radio Oxford…

Also known as Pythagoras’ constant or 1.414… the square root of 2 is possibly the most ‘bad-ass’ of all numbers. Legend has it the man that discovered it was pushed overboard from a ship and drowned for his sins… Ouch.
