Universe model

Massive supercomputer simulation models universe from near birth until today
November 2, 2015

Galaxies have halos surrounding them, which may be composed of both dark and regular matter. This image shows a substructure within a halo in the Q Continuum simulation, with "subhalos" marked in different colors. (credit: Heitmann et al.)
One of the largest cosmological simulations ever run
The Q Continuum simulation, one of the largest cosmological simulations ever performed, has modeled the evolution of the universe from just 50 million years after the Big Bang to the present day. DOE’s Argonne National Laborator led the simulation on the Titan supercomputer at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Over the course of 13.8 billion … more…
