    Was Euler's solution that there is no solution to the problem ?

    Of course, nowadays we really should update it to the "seven bridges of Kaliningrad." Hmm, that sounds more like the name of a WWII movie. :uhh:

    Not quite. Two of the bridges were bombed during WWII and it is now possible to solve the remaining 5 bridges of Kaliningrad problem. Arial bombardment was a solution no one was able to envision during the 1700's.
