Thepersonfromearth (partially found Youtube channel, 2009-2013)
The YouTube channel thepersonfromearth was originally created in 2009. Not much is known about the identity of the user. They most likely live in Europe or Asia, and were estimated to be between the ages of 10-19 when they originally made the channel. In 2013, the channel was deleted off of YouTube, and the user did not re-upload any of their videos to any other website. It is unknown what happened to the original creator that made them delete their channel. At the time before deletion, at least one of their videos had reached 130,000 views: "Size of the Universe III: 'The Deeper Field'", which has since been re-uploaded.
It is known that all of the channel's videos were made with Celestia, a program made by Chris Laurel that lets the user create and travel through a virtual version of the universe. . The videos also used text-to-speech AI instead of a person's voice. In the only known reupload, the IVONA text-to-speech voice named "Eric" is used. . However, "Size of the Universe" episodes I and II, along with the "Journey Through the Universe" videos, used on-screen text, so it's unknown whether this was the only video to use the text-to-speech program.
