0wn yourself


twenty-five terabytes of space simulation goodness

a code for the heavens. that's what's calling it. others call it the 'millennium run'.

me? i call it sweet.

it's the largest simulation of its kind so far. they're tracking the evolutionary paths of matter in a huge (eight cubic light years, if i'm not mistaken) chunk of space. if you're a star trek geek, think voyager astrometrics lab--this is its great great granddaddy.

the more they learn with sims like this one, the more we'll understand about how bodies of matter and the gravitational fields they generate interact with each other, as well as creating a clearer picture of the history of the universe as we can see it.

cool stuff.
