4D Tesseract

This isn't related to aerospace per se, but I've been into quantum physics off and on, and things like this fascinate me. This is supposed to be a "shadow" of a four dimensional object. If 3D objects casts 2D shadows, then it makes sense that 4D objects would cast 3D shadows. Now, it's important to realize that it is humanly impossible to visualize the fourth spatial dimension, but mathematics and computers can sometimes lend a helping hand in conceptualizing this.
