[next] ~~~ [up] Subject: pull out the corner?


I have a question (yes, again). This subject may be discussed here before,
but i don't understand set theory or other high math, so i ask:

If i had a 3x3x3 cube and i pull out a corner piece. I turn it and push
back. Now the cube cannot be solved. I think the cube is now 'on the other
orbit'. If i pull now an edge piece and flip it, the cube is again on some
other orbit.

Only one of those orbits are legal. How many different illegal orbits there are?
