The Epcot ball is a 165-ft diameter geodesic sphere that is elevated above the ground to stand 180 feet tall. Each face of the polyhedron is divided into three isosceles triangles to form each point.
How many triangles are in the Epcot ball?
In theory, there are 11,520 total isosceles triangles forming 3840 points. In reality, some of those triangles are partially or fully nonexistent due to supports and doors; there are actually only 11,324 silvered facets, with 954 partial or full flat triangular panels.
How much did it cost to build the Epcot ball?
Total cost to complete its construction: between $800 million to $1.4 billion, according to estimates, in 1982 dollars.
