The following article is taken from the original announcement on TwistyPuzzles.com on 5/2014.
This is the face turning icosahedron with fixed centers like a canonical Rubik’s Cube or Megaminx. Because of this canonical property, I’m calling it the Radio Canon.
This face turning icosahedron sits between Radiolarian 1 and radiolarian 2, so I’m thinking of it as Radiolarian 1.5.
The Radio Canon Jumbles! And yes, this is the very last one of the Radiolarians I’ll make. I guess it’s a five year series now, started in May of 2009 and ended in May of 2014. Ironically this is the shallowest planar one.
That’s an average of only 3 Radiolarians per year for the last five years. What a trek!
