Geometric Solids

Dr. Bussard says that the number of edges meeting at any vertex must be an even number for optimum operation of the magnetic grid.

Here are some candidate solids you can play with

The Rhombitruncated Cubeoctahedron

The Rhombicosidodecahedron

The Rhombicosidodecahedron

The Rhombicubeoctahedron

The Icosidodecahedron

The Cubeoctahedron

The Octahedron

Or you can go to the main page and look at different solids. The indivildual geometry pages I have given are Java applets. If that doesn't work for you the main page also has them in VRML.

Just wondering ... why does it have to be an even number ?

To get the magnetic fields at the corners into a preferred configuration.
