An exciting paper about gaps between prime numbers - a step closer to proving the twin prime conjecture. Extra footage at http://youtu.be/D4_sNKoO-RA

The proof was published by Yitang "Tom" Zhang from the University of New Hampshire.

We're discussing it in simple terms with Numberphile regulars - physicists Ed Copeland and Tony Padilla from the University of Nottingham.
