Overhead view of fifteen stages of the sphere eversion illustrated in the Geometry Center's video Outside In. It illustrates an amazing mathematical discovery made in 1957: you can turn the surface of a sphere inside out without making a hole, if you think of the surface as being made of an elastic material that can pass through itself. Computer graphics helps to explain as well as present the visual elegance of this process.
