A family $\mathcal N$ of closed subsets of a topological space $X$ is called a {\em closed $k$-network} if for each open set $U\subset X$ and a compact subset $K\subset U$ there is a finite subfamily $\mathcal F\subset\mathcal N$ with $K\subset\bigcup\F\subset \mathcal N$. A compact space $X$ is called {\em supercompact} if it admits a closed $k$-network $\mathcal N$ which is {\em binary} in the sense that each linked subfamily $\mathcal L\subset\mathcal N$ is centered. A closed $k$-network $\mathcal N$ in a topological group $G$ is {\em invariant} if $xAy\in\mathcal N$ for each $A\in\mathcal N$ and $x,y\in G$. According to a result of Kubi\'s and Turek, each compact (abelian) topological group admits an (invariant) binary closed $k$-network. In this paper we prove that the compact topological groups $S^3$ and $\SO(3)$ admit no invariant binary closed $k$-network.Comment: 5 page
