Virtual aircraft (a) and its physical counterpart (b). The computer model includes the fuselage, the furniture and a cable harness. The virtual aircraft is assumed to be in free space, and exposed to a plane wave.

"I thresholded 5 summed plane waves to generate the following point distribution. The Fourier transform of this lattice looks more like what one might expect for a crystal." - Michael Rule

This image depicts the interaction of nine plane waves—expanding sets of ripples, like the waves you would see if you simultaneously dropped 9 stones into a still pond. The pattern is called a quasicrystal because it has an ordered structure, but the structure never repeats exactly. The waves produced by dropping four or more stones into a pond always form a quasicrystal. Harvard physicist Eric Heller created this computer rendering and added color to make the pattern’s structure easier to…
