Un grupo de investigadores franceses ha realizado la primera simulación por ordenador de la estructura de todo el universo observable, desde el Big Bang hasta el momento actual. Estas simulaciones permiten ver cómo han evolucionado nada menos que 550.000 millones de partículas. + info: http://www.ecoapuntes.com.ar/2012/04/la-primera-simulacion-completa-del-universo/

Oh look, it's a wittle baby galaxy. This may be the youngest galaxy ever seen; an irregular dwarf galaxy about 45 million light-years away is seen in this image from NASA. NASA/ESA/A.

Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship.

The Whirlpool Galaxy

The Whirlpool Galaxy, the red spiral, and its companion galaxy, NG 5195 are 23 million light-years from Earth. The warm dust in red is a sign of active star formation probably triggered by a collision between the two galaxies.

Penguin or hummingbird nebula

The image depicts a violent merger between the spiral galaxy NGC 2936 (penguin) and elliptical galaxy NGC 2937 (egg). Together, the merger is known as ARP located about 326 million light-years from Earth.
