The nature of infinity has been the subject of philosophical discussion since the time of the Ancient Greeks. By the late 19th Century, infinity — as a mathematical concept — refined and extended the old philosophical concept, in particular by introducing infinitely many different sizes of infinite sets. Infinity is also a concept in physics and cosmology. The ancient sideways figure-eight symbol has been around as a mathematical symbol of infinity since the mid-17th Century.

But the only mathematical issue these U.S. airmen are tussling with (in a November 5, 2019 photo)¬† is how many hands it takes to wrestle a fiber optic cable into place at Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia — a hot, dusty area which only seems infinite.
