SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
VECTOR EQUILIBRIUM
AN IMPROVED MODEL OF ELECTRON SHELLS

In 1966 & 1978 the sculptor,

Kenneth Snelson, patented

 an improved way of modeling

the various electron shells.

His models reflect nature's geometry

 as discovered by R. Buckminster Fuller.

Snelson's models demonstrate

that there are at least seven

 possible geometric shapes

that the local electron orbits can take.
