Galaxy simulation breaks new ground
Two astronomers have performed one of the world's largest astrophysics simulations to date in order to model the growth of galaxies. Using the "Earth Simulator" supercomputer in Japan, which is also used for climate modelling and simulating seismic activity, Masao Mori of the University of California at Los Angeles and Masayuki Umemura at the University of Tsukuba have calculated how galaxies evolved from just 300 million years after the Big bang to the present day. The results show that galaxies may have evolved much faster than currently believed.
