Giant buckyball tops new nanoscience building
The city of Bristol's (UK) skyline will get an exciting addition today when a large-scale representation of a carbon molecule is installed on the new Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information in the heart of the University's precinct.
The molecule is known as a buckyball as it resembles a geodesic sphere, a structure made popular in the 1940s by American designer Richard Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller.
The Bristol buckyball measures about 4 metres in diameter and will be located on the roof of the building, looking down on Tyndall Avenue.
