Sili-dodecahedrane (Silly-Bucky-Fuller-Cone)

FRANKFURT. The discovery of the soccer ball-shaped C60 molecule in 1985 was a milestone for the development of nanotechnology. In parallel with the fast-blooming field of research into carbon fullerenes, researchers have spent a long time trying in vain to create structurally similar silicon cages. Goethe University chemists have now managed to synthesise a compound … Continue reading Sili-dodecahedrane (Silly-Bucky-Fuller-Cone)

c60 Buckminsterfullerene’s and 2012 Geodesic Revolutions

I have a hunch, a Grunch, about Buckminster Fuller's innovations.Lets make a new TTOTT football, based on the Buckminster Fuller "Carbon 60" structure, and featuring a new Hologrammic Language... that's what I think, or thought just earlier today after work.A Football, everybody plays with a football, no? Lets make a TTOTT football and construct a … Continue reading c60 Buckminsterfullerene’s and 2012 Geodesic Revolutions
