Abstract: The problem of packing space with regular tetrahedral has a 2000 year history. This talk surveys the history of the problem. It includes work by mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, chemists, and materials scientists. Much progress has been made on it in recent years, yet there remain many unsolved problems.
