Now seriously, the “uniform” distribution of many points on the unit sphere is a highly non-trivial problem with applications throughout the whole spectrum of modern science. Whether one studies electrons in equilibrium from Physics, large fullerene compounds from Chemistry, orifices of pollen grain from Biology, or data encoding from Computer Science, one arrives at spherical arrangements of points that minimize some form of energy. So, tighten your seatbelts and prepare for a fascinating journey around the Galaxy of Minimal Energy Points.
