Natural sciences rely on experiments to justify their claims. As a result, all their models are designed to be falsifiable. Mathematicians, however, have a different approach. They only accept a proof as a validation. In this talk, I want to advertise this mindset and take you on a short trip from the history of mathematical proofs towards the exciting feeling of doing the first one on your own.
