We study electron transport across a carbon molecular junction consisting of a C$_{60}$ molecule sandwiched between two semi-infinite metallic carbon nanotubes. It is shown that the Landauer conductance of this carbon hybrid system can be tuned within orders of magnitude not only by varying the tube-C$_{60}$ distance, but more importantly at fixed distances by (i) changing the orientation ...
