**Description**:

The purpose of this paper is to give an introduction to virtual knot theory and to record a collection of research problems that the authors have found fascinating. The second section of the paper introduces the theory and discusses some problems in that context.

The elliptic 3-manifolds are the closed 3-manifolds that admit a Riemannian metric of constant positive curvature. For any elliptic 3-manifold M, the inclusion from the isometry group of M to the diffeomorphism group of M is a homotopy equivalence.
