Six degrees of separation - the movie

Just watched the movie " Six degrees of separation". What a fantastic movie, both interesting and enlightening. Experimenting with the urban myth that everyone on the planet is connected to the other in just a few steps and proving that its not just a myth but a science, namely network science, is an eye opener. Kevin Becan six degree connection is quite interesting. The best part of movie is the theory of hubs, through which the network expands and how this theory is equally important in the field of medicine, to know about the spread of diseases. Really, network science is the foundation of the 21st century.
Thanks Prof Ines Mergel for suggesting to watch this movie.
