  1. space-reflection symmetry

    Space-reflection symmetry, also known as spatial reflection symmetry, refers to the characteristic of a shape or object that allows it to be mirrored or reflected across a line or plane and still appear the same. When an object of space-reflection symmetry is reflected and then superimposed on the original, it coincides with and matches its original image. This is a key concept in geometry and physics, and can be found both in natural and human-made objects.
