Carbon60 Buckyball

Carbon60 in the News

Great to see our namesake, the Buckminsterfullerene, hitting the news this week. Also known as a “buckyball” it is a molecule made up of 60 carbon atoms; hence the name Carbon60.

These molecules form a hollow ball made of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons with each carbon atom having three bonds.

These bonds represent the fundamental people that make the recruitment journey a success:

  1. Our consultants
  2. The jobseeker
  3. The end client

First discovered in 1990 these were created in a laboratory where scientists discovered buckyballs could bounce, return to their original shape if squeezed, and spin at amazingly high speeds.

Still a mystery, the buckminsterfullerene is in the news today as scientists have discovered these molecules occur naturally in space and appear among the stars, which was previously unknown.
