# Is $\mathbb{Q}^2$ homeomorphic to $\mathbb{Q}^2\setminus \{0\}$?

I know that $\mathbb{R}^2$ and $\mathbb{R}^2\setminus\{(0,0)\}$ are not homeomorphic. (For examle $\pi_1(\mathbb{R}^2)=\{e\}$, but $\pi_1(\mathbb{R}^2\setminus\{(0,0)\})=\mathbb{Z}$).

But what can be said about $\mathbb{Q}^2$ and $\mathbb{Q}^2\setminus\{(0,0)\}$? Is there a homeomorphism?

-

$\Bbb Q^2\setminus\{(0,0)\}$ is countable and without isolated points. Therefore the answer is yes. There is a homeomorphism.
Unless I have misunderstood something, the same argument proves that there's a homeomorphism between $\mathbb Q$ and $\mathbb Q^2$. That seemed unlikely, but I did a Google search immediately produced mathoverflow.net/questions/26001/… . Thanks! – MJD Mar 8 '13 at 20:34
