Ansel, in his signature chef style, honoured the mathematical constant by demonstrating the pi formula using his personal Salted Caramel Apple Pie recipe.

In 2010 as well, a Google Doodle was dedicated to Pi Day.

Pi Day was first celebrated by physicist Larry Shaw at the Exploratorium in San Francisco nearly 30 years ago and incidentally in 2009, the United States House of Representatives voted in favour of designating 3/14 as Pi Day.

Geomagnetic solar storm on Earth: Everything you need to know
A solar flare that erupted on August 4, 1972, knocked out long-distance communication across some U.S. states, according to NASA. When the sun emits superheated plasma, otherwise known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), it can trigger a geomagnetic storm.

Today is March 14th, otherwise know as National Pi Day!

It is believed that physicist Larry Shaw was the first to celebrate the day at the Exploratorium in San Francisco with his peers and staff nearly 30 years ago. Without Pi it wouldn't be possible to calculate the area of circle, A=πr². Because its most elementary definition relates to the circle, pi is found in many formulae in trigonometry and geometry, especially those concerning circles, ellipses, and spheres. Close to a trillion places have been calculated of pi and since it is an irrational number, it can go upto infinity. With people all over celebrating today, NASA too has invited the public to celebrate Pi Day (March 14) by organising a "Pi in the Sky" challenge. The rise of computing technology has led to an arms race of sorts to calculate ever more digits of pi: the current record was set a year ago by Christian physicist Peter Trueb, calculated pi to 22.4 trillion digits - 22,459,157,718,361, to be exact - outpacing the previous record set in 2013 by 9 million digits. The Greek Mathematician Archimedes first approximated Pi as roughly 3.14. Mathematicians adopted the symbol π for the expression in the 18th century: Welsh mathematics teacher William Jones is often credited with the first use of the symbol in 1706.
