Teenager Recreates Entire Known Universe in Minecraft

FR Stories

Christopher Slayton has raised the bar by building the entire known Universe in Minecraft.

The 18-year-old San Diego, California, resident's approach to copying the cosmos was very methodical.

Before creating Earth, he went skydiving to observe its beauty from above. To ensure our planet was to scale, he used a globe to measure the distance between each continent.

Once Earth had been perfected, Slayton turned his attention to the rest of the Solar System. His virtual Sun was created using the 'brightest blocks' in Minecraft.

Before building the cluster of galaxies, Slayton spent time observing real-world stars through a telescope.

The 18-year-old's model universe even includes a black hole and plumes of gas and dust!

Slayton's two-month-long effort has not gone unnoticed. His YouTube video outlining the process and showcasing the model universe has garnered over 7.5 million views.
