Simulation of formation of dark matter structures from the early universe to today
Still image from simulation of the formation of dark matter structures from the early universe to today. Gravity makes dark matter clump into dense halos, indicated by bright patches, where galaxies form. In this simulation, a halo like the one that hosts the Milky Way forms and a smaller halo resembling the Large Magellanic Cloud falls toward it. SLAC and Stanford researchers, working with collab ...
