Möbius Strip

Although the Möbius strip is named for German mathematician August Möbius, it was co-discovered independently by Johann Benedict Listing, a completely different German mathematician, but at around the same time in 1858. Weird, right? But that’s not the only strange thing about the Möbius strip. It’s a non-orientable surface. This means it has a path that will take a traveler back to their point of origin. Are you completely confused now? That’s okay! Just watch the video and I’ll explain.
