4D Euclidean space
Polytope of the Month
This month, we introduce a simple but highly-interesting CRF polytope:
This is the projection of Cube atop Icosahedron, also known as K4.21, one of Dr. Klitzing's convex segmentochora. It is formed by placing an icosahedron and a cube in two parallel hyperplanes, and connecting them with 6 triangular prisms, 12 square pyramids, and 8 tetrahedra.
It is interesting because its two generating polyhedra come from two different symmetry groups, octahedral symmetry and icosahedral symmetry, unlike most of the other segmentochora where the two generating polyhedra come from the same family. Their common symmetry group is pyritohedral symmetry.

Ever wondered how to visualize 4-dimensional space? It's not as difficult as it may sound at first! Read the 4D Visualization pages to find out more.
These pages contain information about various 4D objects and many images of their projections into 3D.
