Researchers created a whole virtual universe, and you can even download it
The Uchuu Simulation is the largest and most detailed Universal simulation ever made. It contains 2.1 trillion 'particles' in a space of 9.6 billion light years. The simulation models the evolution of the Universe in more than 13 billion years and does not focus on the formation of stars and planets, but instead looks at the behavior of dark matter within an expanding Universe.
The details of Uchuu are so high that the team can identify everything from galaxy clusters to dark matter halos of individual galaxies. Since dark matter makes up the bulk of matter in the Universe, it is the main driver of the formation and accumulation of galaxies.
It takes an extraordinary amount of computing power and storage to create such a detailed model. The team used over 40,000 computer cores and 20 million computer hours to generate their simulation and generated more than 3 Petabytes of data.
For example, the Exadrive from Nimbus is a 100 TB solid state drive at a standard 3.5-inch standard. Sure, it will cost you $ 40,000, but if you have savings, why not use them to keep a universe in your pocket.
The Uchuu team also has their raw data at skiesanduniverses.org, so you can explore their virtual universe whatever you want.
