Animation of a Cuboctahedron. ... has 4 planes that pass through its center, and map to hexagons where they intersect the surface of the cuboctahedron. These correspond to the 4 planes that intersect the sphere as great circles. One particularly interesting fact about the cuboctahedron is that it is the solution to the sphere kissing problem in 3 dimensions : http://www.elilabs.com/~rj/faceted_annulus.html (240 is the number of spheres incident to the central sphere in 8 dimensions). Higher dimensional analogues to the cuboctahedron have implications in the quantuum electrodynamical study of gravity and zero point energy, or the energetic vacuum, as well as in algebraic coding theory.
