A team of astrophysicists from the University of Heidelberg, Munich University of Technology, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Center for Computational Physics (CCA) have prepared the most accurate visualization of the structure of our universe in the history of space research.
It is called Illustris: The Next Generation (IllustrisTNG) and shows us how black holes affect the distribution of dark matter, the formation of galaxies and heavy elements, and the formation of magnetic fields in space.
The simulation also allows us to travel into the past, e.g. to the formation period of our solar system or into the future, to understand its evolution. IllustrisTNG is an amazing tool that brings together all the greatest astronomical discoveries to date and presents them in a very vivid way.
Visualization is 3 times more advanced and accurate than the one created 7 years ago. At that time, it used an observation area with a radius of 350 million light years, and now it is one billion light years.
Astrophysicists intend to harness the incredible power of this tool and use it to simulate the effects of gas and dark matter on the formation of new galaxies. Thanks to this, we will be able to find out what the universe will look like in the future.
Looking at the above footage, presenting the work of IllustrisTNG visualization, one cannot help but get the impression that the structure of the universe resembles the neural network in our brain or the illuminated cities at night seen from orbit. It all gives a lot to think about.
