Why doesn’t $\mathbb CP^2 \mathbin\# \mathbb CP^2$ admit an almost complex structure?

Why an almost complex structure on real 2-dimensional manifold is integrable?

We know that there is an almost complex structure on $S^6$ which is not integrable. Is it always possible to find almost complex structures on $S^{2n}$? In particular does $S^4$ admit one?

It is fairly well-known that the only spheres which admit almost complex structures are $S^2$ and $S^6$. By embedding $S^6$ in the imaginary octonions, we obtain a non-integrable almost complex structure on $S^6$. By embedding $S^2$ in the imaginary quaternions, do we obtain an almost complex structure on $S^2$? If so, is it the one […]
