Explore the cosmos with this bonkers interactive model
Wired - 04/18/2016
Physicists believe the universe to be a network of galaxies connected by filaments of gas—an invisible mesh of connections called the cosmic web. In a new paper titled The Network Of the Cosmic Web and published on the preprint server arXiv, physicist Bruno Coutinho and his research team at Northeastern University’s Barabasi Lab explore how using different algorithms can help scientists get a better understanding of the cosmic web’s underlying architecture. The thinking goes that, by visualizing the cosmic web, we might better understand how galaxies relate to one another.
