This picture shows Fuller on the cover of Time Magazin, January 10, 1964. Notice how his head is modelled as a geodesic dome. Can you find a pentagon?
Buckminster Fuller died in 1983, so he did not live to see the discovery of the molecule (in 1985) that now bears his name. But maybe he did did have a sixth sense, since he chose to work as a professer at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
