# Desegregate the Knights

You are given a 3 by 3 chessboard with a knight on each corner, where the knights in the top row are black and in the bottom row are white.

On each turn, you may move a knight of either color (the way it moves in chess) to an unoccupied square.

Is it possible to rearrange the knights so that they are still in the corners, but where knights in opposite corners are the same color? If so, how many turns does it take to do so?
