The story behind this is my bought of the Sputnik. I thought it is s twisty, but it is an interlocking.

Therefore I designed my own Sputnik. It contains 12 edges with a peek, and 18 white squares.
You can move the 3 slices on the equator.

Sputnik looks more like a WWII German naval contact mine. Does it explode when you solve it?

This is the true spirit of puzzle making:
If it dares to be an interlocking puzzle then make a twisty out of it!

To get this straigt:
This is a derivate of the equator.
It has 16 segments per circle.
There are 12 pairs of two glued squares and equipped with a peak.
Weight?
Diameter?

I don't believe I've noticed the Saturn puzzle before but I see its not a new puzzle.

As for the Sputnik... how does one know when its solved? Do you need the original interlocking puzzle to know the appropriate solved configuration?

That does look like a contact mine, and it also looks like there is some very minor bandaging due to triple-sized pieces that hold the extended rods. Maybe it's not bandaging, but it sure looks like it.

Yes Carl, you are right. I saw the old version of Saturn to late.

Andreas, on each circles are 12 segments. 4 "edges" with a stift and 4 squares, and 4 squares (centers) additionally. This is also the solved state.
