Rubik’s Cube Day

Who knew?  There is a Rubik’s cube day.  Why today you might ask?  Well today the inventor of the Rubik’s cube was born.  His name was Erno Rubik.  He was a Hungarian mathematician, educator, and inventor.  The rubik’s cube was very popular in the 80’s.  If some how you haven’t seen one yet, it’s a cube (obvisously) and made up of 27 smale cubes that rotate on a central axis.  There are six colored cube faces in three rows of 3 each to form the sides.  After mixing the colors the goal is to get all the colors to match again on the same side of the cube.
