    , quite a name in mathematics (Fields Medal, Abel Prize, loads and loads of contributions) that he's proven the , easily the biggest unsolved problem in mathematics. This could be just another failed proof, or it could be a mathematical result on the order of Fermat's Last Theorem. Time will tell. Could be very exciting!

    I'm really excited by this, and I hope his proof is good...and who wouldn't root for an 89 year old mathematician.

    Haven't heard any update on the status of his proof, other than, apparently, Atiyah passed away on January 11.
