Craig Zucker started Bucky Balls
in 2009 but later faced concern from the (https://www.cpsc.gov/) Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regarding possible safety risks.
Buckminster Fuller have the same geometry, leading scientists to refer to C60 as 'buckminsterfullerene' or 'bucky balls

Lon Wilson, PhD, also from Rice University, has looked at the therapeutic and imaging possibilities of carbon-based molecular scaffolds, specifically fullerenes (bucky balls
) and carbon-based nanotubes.
Richard Smalley, a research professor at Rice University, discovered "bucky balls
." This breakthrough marked the beginning of RAMP.
