An international team of researchers has engineered the most accurate supercomputer animation of the cosmos' early evolution to date.
The simulation represents the third version of the Cosmic Dawn Project (CoDaIII), which the University of Texas at Austin's Paul Shapiro described as the first model to fully encompass the interaction between radiation and the flow of matter in the universe.
CoDaIII spans the period from about 10 million years after the Big Bang through the next several billion years, as matter composing the modern cosmos diffused.
Shapiro said the animation depicts how the early universe's structure is "imprinted on the galaxies today, which remember their youth, or their birth, or their ancestors from the epoch of reionization."
