Is the intersection between an arbitrary but fixed plane and the spatial Poisson Voronoi tessellation a planar Voronoi tessellation? In this paper a negative answer is given to this long-standing question in stochastic geometry. The answer remains negative for the intersection between a t-dimensional linear affine space and the d-dimensional Poisson Voronoi tesssellation, where 2≦t≦d-1. Moreover, it is shown that each cell on this intersection is almost surely a non-Voronoi cell.
