The flying saucer design was a remarkable breakthrough, not because it had any physical benefits, but rather because its perfect symmetry means it has no clear front- nor backside and thus deftly sidesteps regulations otherwise forbidding cost-saving building materials like cardboard, string, and sellotape.
