Caption: Buckminsterfullerene molecule. Computer artwork showing the molecular structure of buckminsterfullerene, a structurally distinct form (allotrope) of carbon that has 60 carbon atoms (spheres) arranged in a spherical structure consisting of interlinking hexagonal and pentagonal rings, like a football. These spherical fullerenes are sometimes referred to as buckyballs.
