Someone has made the world's most difficult Rubik's Cube

Like puzzles?

Not as much as YouTuber Coren Puzzle does. Not by a long shot. 

His preferred flavour of head-scratcher is the Rubik's Cube - that sliding, colour matching time eater made by Ernő Rubik in 1977. 

While Rubik's original cube consisted of three-by-three squares, Coren Puzzle has been attempting to create a record breaking 22-by-22 monster. That's 2,904 squares.

The problem? Making such a vast cube slide without breaking...

That was November of 2015. Now, Coren Puzzle has uploaded a new video showing off his record-breaking (and importantly, entirely working) 22-by-22 Cube.

"Gosh, that must be pretty hard to complete..." 

You're right, anonymous internet reader. But for an impression of just how hard, here's the number of possible colour combinations this Cube can take:

43 255 043 761 603 797 113 630 091 774 844 134 775 453 550 640 366 980 778 547 673 133 233 526 156 056 111 086 352 762 541 106 680 563 100 444 501 556 754 078 061 200 040 161 902 545 444 981 363 159 418 942 317 624 324 342 475 893 310 046 720 902 418 909 842 572 254 925 048 152 255 763 863 441 303 957 601 376 714 844 611 959 683 697 690 635 818 016 496 854 273 739 359 313 279 064 666 370 046 140 892 353 517 823 980 846 922 675 751 474 787 577 446 355 037 664 594 347 801 588 102 349 880 881 928 045 254 762 441 010 636 430 061 482 254 233 491 880 624 942 631 395 654 007 616 048 601 555 395 209 216 128 415 329 219 747 176 133 779 395 956 146 746 911 514 214 771 775 855 690 239 351 072 162 630 720 328 485 482 144 507 681 466 660 622 736 814 225 845 041 389 468 585 359 274 634 625 239 725 398 675 655 356 047 474 149 388 129 506 975 426 678 293 985 190 094 954 373 200 648 529 109 213 009 085 243 025 295 695 714 725 062 048 495 626 790 315 739 291 458 632 493 329 982 002 276 666 437 129 462 665 130 296 574 060 413 847 380 108 081 447 548 388 904 581 805 682 624 806 259 243 368 405 271 472 607 466 620 943 953 521 539 611 552 808 899 034 647 451 671 884 821 871 473 150 002 371 967 161 469 667 395 692 183 541 805 647 906 126 837 698 919 382 420 530 164 759 161 006 195 029 042 343 889 342 090 679 974 741 074 212 214 617 599 362 461 432 095 130 944 516 954 244 601 505 865 754 479 368 324 547 884 288 638 788 858 960 324 700 273 827 359 843 495 876 728 690 396 404 545 429 654 674 917 908 712 080 130 069 636 174 970 892 229 914 900 256 301 061 633 858 082 796 212 971 135 604 567 450 455 305 742 728 394 508 401 221 110 518 309 419 409 022 610 708 624 448 968 624 438 667 397 328 140 010 446 578 078 230 783 252 681 413 859 281 663 088 893 481 022 928 914 102 101 729 840 481 251 353 235 030 016 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000

Good luck completing it.
