New simulation diagrams of how the early Universe evolved within seconds of the Big Bang

A new simulation maps the first seconds after the Big Bang, focusing on what scientists call the intergalactic medium, or the gas and dust between galaxies.

A team led by researchers from the Institute for Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (IAC) used machine learning, a type of algorithm that trains a computer to recognize patterns, to complete 100,000 hours of computation. The algorithm for this project is called Hydro-BAM.
