I looked at this a while ago and got a closer figure for the FCC cube method with k = 42,223,445
Na* = 602,214,151,767,324,550,096,221
But of course the atoms at the corners wont be bound properly and a cube of carbon in air ends up having a layer of Nitrogen bonded to the surface so making a real one is pointless, but the simplicity and elegance of idea is the point I suppose.
