Dark matter distribution

Dark matter distribution. Supercomputer simulation of the distribution of dark matter in the local universe. Dark matter is a form of matter that cannot be detected by telescopes as it emits no radiation. Its presence is inferred by its gravitational action on visible matter. It is thought that visible matter (such as galaxies) occupies halos of dark matter (bright dots). The halos are connected by filaments of cold, invisible dark matter (red). This simulation matches the observed distribution of galaxies well, suggesting current theories about the universe are accurate

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a mesmerizing visualization of the elusive dark matter distribution in our local universe. Dark matter, an enigmatic form of matter that remains undetectable by telescopes due to its lack of radiation emission, reveals itself through its gravitational influence on visible matter. In this supercomputer simulation, we witness how galaxies are believed to reside within halos formed by dark matter (depicted as bright dots), while being interconnected by filaments composed of cold and invisible dark matter (highlighted in red). The remarkable accuracy with which this simulation aligns with the observed distribution of galaxies provides strong evidence supporting current theories about the vast expanse we call our universe. The intricate network depicted here represents a breakthrough in our understanding of cosmology and astrophysics. As we delve into this image, we find ourselves immersed in a cosmic tapestry where countless mysteries await unraveling. It serves as a testament to human ingenuity and technological advancements, showcasing the power of supercomputers in deciphering the secrets hidden within the depths of space. Through this awe-inspiring visual representation captured by Science Photo Library, we are reminded that there is still much left to explore and comprehend about our place within this grand cosmic symphony.
