MIT Researchers Create Computer Model Of The History Of The Universe: VIDEO

Model of the Universe

Revealing that they might in fact be part Time Lord, researchers at MIT have constructed an immense computer simulation of the 14 billion year history of the universe, from 12 million years after the Big Bang to the present, using both the stars and galaxies we can see and the energies and dark matter that we can't.

For those of us that were never very good at astronomy, The Guardian has a great breakdown of the research and methods behind the model's construction, while Nature has the study available for purchase as a PDF and a short video of the model in action, which you can watch AFTER THE JUMP...
