#MathArtChallenge Day 58: The Miura Fold

The Challenge: Fold a Miura fold. This was used on the Japanese “Space Flyer Unit” launched in 1995! (That website also has decent instructions.)

Materials needed: Patience, paper, some sort of pen/flat thing to sharpen creases.

A note before (more) instructions:

And an instructional video. Feel free to add other instructional videos in the comments! As always, I would LOVE to see anything you make. Post on twitter or instagram with #mathartchallenge.
