The word quasar stands for quasi-stellar radio source. Quasars got that name because they looked starlike when astronomers first began to notice them in the late 1950s and early 60s. But quasars aren’t stars. They’re now known as young galaxies, located at vast distances from us, with their numbers increasing towards the edge of the visible universe. How can they be so far away and yet still visible? The answer is that quasars are extremely bright, up to 1,000 times brighter than our Milky Way galaxy. We know, therefore, that they’re highly active, emitting staggering amounts of radiation across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. They are also thought to be powered by a supermassive black hole in their centres

Because they’re far away, we’re seeing these objects as they were when our universe was young. The oldest quasar, currently, is J0313-1806. Its distance has been measured as 13.03 billion light-years, and therefore we see it as it was just 670 million years after the Big Bang.

This map is so big that you will need to have your chunks-loading-distance to at least 35 chunks. I also recommend using any shaders as it will look way more realistic and beautiful.

Version: 1.17.1

Gamemode: Creative or Spectator (if you spawn in survival and you can't use tricks, open the world in LAN and activate them)

Hope you all like it, and don't forget to check out my other astronomical builds!

Долго автор эту модель делал. Думаю любой адекватный диванный астроном оценит, насчёт пранкиков и теоретиков не знаю возможно им просто не-когда.

Super cool world! Is there any policy if we'd like to use this as part of a non-commercial education project to teach kids about astronomy? Like a creative commons license or anything?
