This is Buckminsterfullerence (bucky-ball) which is a spherical molecule of carbon. Each vertex is an atom of carbon. 
 Buckminsterfullerene is the most commonly naturally occurring fullerene (composed completely of carbon) molecule, as it can be found in small quantities in soot. Solid and gaseous forms of the molecule have been detected in deep space. The chemists who discovered the molecule won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1996. 
On October 7th, 1939 (74 years ago, today) Harry Kroto, a man who was key to the discovery of the molecule was born.
