• Particle-based simulations, in which large-scale cosmic features like gas clouds and stars (and the interactions between them) are represented by simple points, are a crucial tool for both connecting the realm of particle physics and cosmology and for studying the structural development of the universe since the Big Bang.
  • The result of the simulation is a set of high-resolution “cyber images,” that is being made available to the public as a 55 terabyte data set.
  • The data provides a uniquely deep picture of the large-scale evolution of the universe, possibly offering clues into the nature of dark matter and dark energy.
