Physicists Just Created the Most Detailed Simulation of the Universe in History

livescience.com
  • After over a year of simulations run on a 16,000-processor core supercomputer, the most detailed model of the Universe’s expansion has been created.
  • The model is ~230 million light-years wide, with tens of thousands of evolving galaxies.
  • Among the findings are new, previously unstudied, phenomena that were not explicitly programmed into the simulation.
  • The simulation shows exactly how galaxies formed from clouds of gas after the Big Bang.
