In The Beginning...

A simulation by researchers in UC San Diego cosmologist Michael Norman's group modeled a large portion of the observable Universe, starting only a few billion years after the Big Bang. In the largest-ever such computation, made possible by computing resources at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, the Enzo code demonstrates its huge dynamic range, as the sophisticated code adapts or zooms in from the full volume 1.5 billion light years across down to the size of a galaxy (inset).
