Dark matter simulation. After 6 million CPU hours, the world's seventh fastest supercomputer output many scientific novelties including the above flight
simulation. Starting from the relatively smooth dark matter distribution of the early universe discerned from the microwave background and other large sky data sets, the Bolshoi tracked the universe's
evolution to the present epoch shown above, given the standard concordance cosmology.

waiting for technology to produce the tools for probing into galaxies that are not visible in the normal light wave
sectrum or infa-red. The new ALMA array is near completion in Chile however it is in use while the array is
