Problem. How to partition R^3 into pairwise non-parallel lines?
A possible solution is to stack infinitely many ``concentric'' hyperboloids, by increasing radius and decreasing slope. And don't forget the line on the $z$ axis at the center. The prototype hyperboloid looks like this.
I heard a talk to which I didn't understand a lot ; a solution was given using hopf fibration. I'm not familiar to these notions, and at the end it went like ``Tadaa! And here is our partition!''. The speaker could not describe what the partition looks like.
I would be very glad to: (1) understand the math he did (article, book?), (2) see what his solution looks like, and (3) know what kind of solutions exist.
Thanks in advance!
