"The group's finding began with geometric models developed by mathematician Gábor Domokos of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, whose work predicted that natural rocks would fragment into cubic shapes.

"This paper is the result of three years of serious thinking and work, but it comes back to one core idea," says Domokos.

""If you take a three-dimensional polyhedral shape, slice it randomly into two fragments and then slice these fragments again and again, you get a vast number of different polyhedral shapes. But in an average sense, the resulting shape of the fragments is a cube."

"in an AVERAGE sense, the resulting shape of the fragments is a cube..."

In the AVERAGE sense, they could also be spheres. Or turtles.
