Test the Limits of the Speed of Light in Minecraft Video

Have you ever wondered what the speed of light looks like in Minecraft? This video from spumwack gives you the answer, and is also a good primer on the concept itself.

Spumwack uses a series of doors to explain how light speed is the limit to how fast things can go in the universe. Then, using mods, a straight track, and some math spumwack set up an experiment that allows him to traverse a Minecraft word at the scale speed of light. It goes by unbelievably fast, but the amazing thing is that Minecraft worlds are so large it’s slower than it would be on the actual Earth.

Science! You gotta love it.
