Picking a pair of antipodal points alone leads to a projective plane RP(2). As flipping the axis can be compensated by rotating in the opposite direction.
When you fibrate SO(3) with RP² as base space like this, you get full 360° circles as fibers. Think of them as the diameters of the ball.
Now let's double cover that beast:
