Minecraft infographic works out the staggering number of blocks used in a single world

New, 3 comments

A Minecraft infographic designed by Reddit user FriskyShotgun details how to determine the mind-boggling amount of blocks estimated to be used in a single world.

The break-down, which can be viewed below, works out the figure through a method of measuring the size of each block compared to the area of the Minecraft world. It concludes each Minecraft world contains over two hundred sixty-two quadrillion, one hundred and forty-four trillion blocks, including air blocks; however, Reddit users continue to debate whether it is in fact even far larger a number.

That's around 26,000 times the number of starts within the Milky Way galaxy.
