"From late 1998 until April, 1999, a computer analysis of all 3x3x3 3-piece burrs was run. There are 248,540,275,292 different such designs. The highest level solution found was 8, and there were 80 such solutions. These solutions came apart in two different ways. One of these was chosen as a souvenir puzzle and named GigaBurr, and one which comes apart in the other way was made as GigaBurr II." -Bill Cutler
