# antipodal map from sphere to projective space is immersion and submersion?

Define a map $\mathbb{S}^n \to \mathbb{RP}^n$ given by $x \mapsto \{ x,-x\}.$ Clearly this is not a diffeomorphism, but how can one show that it is an immersion and submersion?

@Nicolo' Note that $S^n_+=\{x\in S^n, x_0>0\}$ can be the local charts of both $S^n$ and $RP^n$, what is the antipodal map in this chart? –  Ma Ming Jun 11 '13 at 10:06
