150 Irregular Hexagons, Rotating About a Common Axis

150 Irregular Hexagons, Rotating About a Common Axis

150 Irregular Hexagons, Rotating About a Common Axis

There are sixty of the irregaular, pentagonal gaps. Also, the hexagons themselves are of three types, two of which are sixty in number, and one of which is thirty in number.

If the gaps are filled, and the color scheme changed to make each of the four polygon-types into its own color-group, this looks, instead, like this (click on it if you wish to see it enlarged). It has 210 faces.

This is how you handle getting your privileged called out. 

Not “reverse racism!” Not “heterophobe!” and all those other dynamics that don’t exist. Just recognition. Recognition of privilege (and hopefully continuous self-checking)

On the Geography of Eurasia, and Its Major Divisions

By any reasonable non-political definition, Eurasia is a single continent. Its area is 54,759,000 km², which is over one-third the earth’s total land area.

The politics of history have created, however, the “continents” of Europe, with an area of 10,180,000 km² (18.59% of Eurasia), and Asia, with an area of 44,579,000 km² (81.41% of Eurasia). These figures for Asia’s land area include that of…

The Deconstruction of the Compound of Five Cubes

An Examination of the Compound of Five Cubes

To make the compound of five cubes, begin with a dodecahedron, as seen above. Next, add segments as new edges, and let them be all of the diagonals of all the dodecahedron’s faces. Then, remove the pentagonal faces, as well as the original edges. What’s left is five cubes, in this arrangement. In this (and subsequent) images, simply click on it to see it enlarged.

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot

  • Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS) is an atmospheric storm that has been raging in Jupiter’s southern Hemisphere for at least 400 years.
  • About 100 years ago, the storm covered over 40,000 km of the surface. It is currently about one half of that size and seems to be shrinking. 
  • At the present rate that it is shrinking it could become circular by 2040. The GRS rotates counter-clockwise(anti-cyclonic) and makes a full rotation every six Earth days. 
  • It is not known exactly what causes the Great Red Spot’s reddish color. The most popular theory, which is supported by laboratory experiments, holds that the color may be caused by complex organic molecules, red phosphorus, or other sulfur compounds. 
  • The GRS is about two to three times larger than Earth. Winds at its oval edges can reach up to 425 mph (680 km/h) 
  • Infrared data has indicated that the Great Red Spot is colder (and thus, higher in altitude) than most of the other clouds on the planet
