# Superconducting Quantum Levitation on a 3π Möbius Strip

Quantum levitation on a 3π Möbius strip track! Watch the superconductor levitate above the track and suspend below the track, without having to go across the edge.

Our track is not an “ordinary” Möbius strip with just one twist, but rather a Möbius strip with three twists — 540 degrees, or 3π radians, thus, a 3π Möbius strip track.

That means it levitates when it’s above the track and suspends itself when below the track, and appears to travel on both sides because there’s really only one side to a Möbius strip.
