A double shell of Platonic solids: A trajectory that connects the six-numbered rings of Ih-C80 is followed by the two La atoms of La2@C80 according to maximum entropy/Rietveld analysis of the synchtron powder-diffraction data. The result is a pentagonal-dodecahedral charge-density distribution for La2 (brown in the picture) inside the icodsahedral C80 cage (green).
