[gzhlxnve] Next order soccer ball

Construct a soccer ball out of 12 pentagonal patches and (I think) 80 hexagonal patches, the dual of the next-order icosahedral geodesic dome.  The hexagonal patches are of 2 different shapes (60 of one shape and 20 of the other), and the 60 shape is not 6-way symmetrical, so require correct orientation when assembling.
