Unslicing Conway knot

This one in celebration of maths student Lisa Piccirillo  who recently unsliced the famous Conway knot that puzzled mathematicians for decades.

In knot theory, the Conway knot is a particular knot with 11 crossings. It is named after mathematician John Horton Conway

Genius mathematician Conway, who passed away recently, was also a great humanist. He would have loved to thank Lisa in person, I’m sure.
