Savršen ukras za stol!

Here's an embarrassingly simplified crash course on superstring theory, so apologies go to the pros out there. Einstein's famous theory of general relativity only works when the scale is very large. When things get small, they also get weird. The smaller you get, the math predicting behavior starts to break down. Field strengths bend upwards towards infinity, and that can't happen.
Down below the subatomic, smaller than we can probe with supercolliders, spacetime is twisted into a chaotic roiling froth - sometimes called the quantum foam. Down here, spacetime isn't just four-dimensional (three spacial dimensions plus time), but ten-dimensional, and it needs to be to make the superstring theory work... But where are all those extra dimensions?
It is theorized that those extra six dimensions are compacted - folded up into twisted shapes that, when projected into the three spacial dimensions we can see, look like this. This shape is called the Calabi-Yau Manifold, named after mathematicians that designed the shapes. It's unclear whether or not Eugenio Calabi or Sing-Tung Yau were able to pull back enough from the math to see the beauty of their creations, but we were able to find this beautiful crystalline cube with the Calabi-Yau manifold etched inside.
