Do you dream of conquering the Universe? Thanks to an astonishing simulation developed by an international team of researchers, this is now possible. All you need to do is connect to the Internet. Ready for the great journey through time and space?
Aterui II (Japan) is adedicated to astronomy, among the . Not less than 40,200 . But it still took some 20 million hours of computing to compile three petabytes of data. And finally produce Uchuu – understand ” space “, in Japanese – the most extensive and realistic simulation of our Universe to date. A virtual cube 9.63 billion light years apart containing no less than 2,100 billion particles.
Uchuu offers a breathtaking view of thein large scale. From giant clusters to the smallest . Above all, it simulates the evolution of matter over almost its entire history. That is some 13.8 billion years. A bit like a time machine that would also allow you to zoom into space. To see what is happening every moment and every place in the Universe.

Uchuu’s accuracy, however, stops at the scale of galaxies. The simulation does not show thereor planets. It focuses on how the influences the major structures of our Universe.
Another remarkable point is that the international team that developed Uchuu wanted to make simulation accessible to everyone. Using a high density compression method to reduce the space occupied by data to just 100 terabytes. Fromcapable of receiving so much data exist. But they are expensive. In the order of 35,000 euros. And that is not accessible to everyone. Fortunately, it is also possible to access data from . Enough to explore this incredible without putting your hand in your pocket.
