"moebius strip"
can anybody please help me?
i'm deeply interested in the special property of moebius strip-one-sidedness
so, i'm planning to do a mathematical research on that
but lately,i've discovered that the property is widely used in phisycs and space travel and all that stuff
is it mathematical enough to do a research on the strip?
another thing, can anybody suggest a resourceful website about moebius strip?

thank you

Well, I can't say much about space travel, let alone applications of one-sided surfaces to same.

It's all up to you. E.g., knots are the subject of mathematical theory but also are used to hold sneakers on feet.

I do not believe there is one comprehensive site covering all aspects of the Moebius strip. There's definitely an opprotunity for a resourceful fellow.

When you search the Web, look for both "Moebius strip" and "Moebius band" that are used interchageably.
