In this short article I want to talk about prime numbers. In particular: about the fact that there exist an infinite number of prime numbers. This has been proven more than 2000 years ago, but I noticed that a lot of my friends that don't have a mathematical background, aren't aware of this fact.
Yet it is rather easy to prove. So that is what I'll be doing in this article. If you are afraid of math, don't worry, it won't take more than 10 minutes.
