STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Chris Slayton is taking the video game Minecraft to the next level. Minecraft is a game where you build houses, dig tunnels, create worlds. And thousands of people follow his creations online. Now he has set out to build the entire observable universe block by block. He spent months studying black holes and identifying the colors of the planets. He tells The New York Times, I want to up the standards. It's MORNING EDITION.
