Science with a Twist: Harvard Researchers Discover Helix Shape

It might be time to take a closer glance at the nearest landline phone cord. Harvard researchers recently discovered a new shape—the hemihelix—which can be found in helical-like structures such as phone cords or slinkies. Shapes like the hemihelix might shed light on the process of creating three dimensional shapes from two dimensional starting materials, researchers said.
