In keeping with their focus on scientific topics, such as developments in mathematics and theoretical physics, Quanta Magazine recently kicked off their second season of In Theory, a video series that aims to "demonstrate complex ideas in science and math in a clear, quirky and aesthetically pleasing style." The newest installment of this series, created by Emily Driscoll of BonSci Films, examines the concept of universality, "a phenomenon that reveals underlying mathematical connections in the world." In this animated video, this mathematical concept is explored through unexpected phenomena, such as a bus system in Mexico and patterns in chickens' eyes. Currently, there are ten videos available in this series, most of which are under five minutes long. In Theory is produced by Michelle Yun, and its first season was hosted by theoretical particle physicist David Kaplan.
