    Broken Symmetry

    The three-pronged Broken Symmetry sculpture was created from the deckplate of the USS Princeton aircraft carrier and installed in 1978. It represents the notions of symmetry and symmetry breaking that are vital to physics. The arch appears perfectly symmetrical when viewed directly from above or below, but it has carefully calculated asymmetry from its other views.
