The Rubik’s Cube is a 3D puzzle by a Hungarian sculptor and professor Ernő Rubik. There are six colors and each side is colored by nine stickers.

For the puzzle to be solved, each side must have only one color. Although the Rubik’s Cube reached its height of mainstream popularity in the 1980s, it is still widely known and used.

Many speedcubers continue to practice it and other twisty puzzles and compete for the fastest times in various categories. Since 2003, The World Cube Association, the Rubik’s Cube’s international governing body, has organized competitions worldwide and kept the official world records.

There are dedicated speedcubers who set the world record for 3×3 speedcubing. One speedcuber is Feliks Zemdegs. His fastest solve is 4.59 seconds.

There are many ways to solve the Rubik’s Cube, such as CFOP. Beginners always do F2L or the first two layers of the cube.

A Rubik’s Cube has twelve edge pieces and eight corner pieces. A corner will always be a corner and an edge will be an edge. A corner can’t be an edge piece. A cube has about forty-three quintillion scrambles.
