Visualization of the intensity of shock waves in the cosmic gas (blue) around collapsed dark matter structures (orange/white). Similar to a sonic boom, the gas in these shock waves is accelerated with a jolt when impacting on the cosmic filaments and galaxies. | IllustrisTNG

This Is the Most Detailed Simulation of the Universe

Researchers have developed the most advanced model of the universe, called IllustrisTNG, which will advance understanding of how galaxies form and evolve.
