Here's the Milky Way's Supermassive Black Hole In Minecraft


Minecraft is a sandbox type game which means that anything is possible within it. You can create additional games such as Crossy Road, or make something huge and beautiful like this contest-winning Star Wars construction. It is possible to investigate the mysteries of space, like the star-smashing Black Hole at the center of our galaxy.



Reddit user SrMustard created a new interpretation of Sagittarius A* by using Reddit. If you're not sure what that is, Sagittarius A* is a supermassive black hole, specifically the one that the Event Horizon Telescope revealed in an image May 12. It is located at the center of our galaxy, The Milky Way, with a mass equivalent in to 4,310,000 Suns. It's a dark hole, however, which means it's denser than a Minecraft Villager, and it is able to absorb light and whatnot. We'll never be able to capture the grandeur of this celestial body, but you'll get the idea.



SrMustard created a model and posted it on PlanetMinecraft. It's not just a simple circle of orange that wraps around the black orb. There was lots of thought in the design. down with destruction This is because SrMustard wanted to make it as realistic as it could be and included "the disk of accretion, the Schwarzchild radius and the event horizon, and the gap between the event horizon and the disk of accretion, which simulates the real empty regions around the black hole."



This is because, as you know the black hole draws in everything around itself, even light. It will crush anything that is too close. What happens then? Probably a very painful death, but we're not really certain. This mysterious element is the reason for many sci-fi films including Interstellar and Event Horizon. Many people were too young and are now living in terror.



In less terrifying news you can alter it so that Minecraft mobs look like adorable little Lego figurines with a mod, if you want to. They're all adorable except for the pig. We're pretty sure it was in Event Horizon.
