Polytope of the Month
This month's Polytope of the Month is a modification of the familiar snub 24-cell:
This is the runcinated snub 24-cell, an interesting polytope that, even though it is not uniform, is nevertheless vertex-transitive and CRF, thus belonging to the class of scaliform polytopes. As its name implies, it is derived from the snub 24-cell by radially expanding the 24 icosahedral cells outward. The remaining gaps are filled in by 24 truncated tetrahedra, 96 triangular cupolae, and 96 triangular prisms.
