Fullerene C60 discovered in 1856?

Recommended Posts

A C60 fullerene has 20 hexagons; but also 12 pentagons, and the observation doesn't mention these; but the biggest problem I see is it's diameter; we simply couldn't see things 7 angstroms in diameter 1856. If we could, and above 260 kelvin, the spin would make it appear spherical.

Glitch is seeing crystallised C60, not the actual molecules.

So because it's mostly carbon and shaped like a hexagon, it's fullerene?
