Researchers from the University of Zurich was developed with the help of the largest supercomputer simulation of the birth and development of the Universe, according to a press release published on the portal Phys.org.

25 virtual universe includes billions of galaxies, formed in turn from two trillion digital particle represents the elements of dark matter.

When creating the simulation were used supercomputer Piz Daint, installed at the Swiss National computing centre. To generate the virtual Universe is gone 80 hours.

The latest development will be of great help in studying the formation of large-scale cosmic structures. It will also help in studies of the distribution of dark matter.
