Watch Galaxies Evolve Over 9 Billion Years — In Just One Minute
This computer animation simulates 9 billion years of cosmic history.
Using the high-performance "Odyssey" supercomputer at Harvard, and a new software program called "Arepo", researchers have created “the most realistic simulation of cosmic evolution to date.”
The model begins 4 billion years after the Big Bang and details the evolution of galactic structure in our local region of space up to the present day.
The 1,024 processor cores of the supercomputer took months to process all the complex equations and data necessary to produce it.
