Mathematician’s Favorite Number

I heard a interview with Günter Ziegler, professor at the TU Berlin and President of the German Mathematics Association, this morning on the radio.  The interviewer, the silky-named Liane von Billerbeck, asked him what his favorite number was.  Even if you can’t read the interview, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that it was…42.
