Rubik's Cube In 26 Moves!

According to the BBC website, the Rubik's Cube can now be solved in just 26 moves. This is all thanks to a super computer that can return the Rubik's Cube to its original state in no more than 26 moves (it took the computer 63 hours to beat the previous record).

There are 43 billion billion possible Rubik's cube positions but graduate students Daniel Kunkle and Gene Cooperman from Northeastern University in Boston were able to work out a short cut!

Over 100 million Rubik's Cubes were sold in the period 1980-1982 and has enjoyed various revivals over the years.
