ICRAR has a talented team of cosmological simulators that make giant sections of Universes inside computers to see what happens when galaxies smash together, or dark matter pulls things towards it. They're trying to replicate what the real Universe looks like inside a computer to help us understand how we got to be the way we are today. This video shows a selection of some of their latest simulations. They'll be showing off their current work in an extra special planetarium show in October.

The team at ICRAR is led by Professor Chris Power at ICRAR-UWA and includes Dr Rick Newton (Jim Buckee Fellow in Astrophysics) and Dr Paul Scott-Taylor. ICRAR thanks Dr Jim Buckee for his generosity in establishing the Jim Buckee Fellowship in Astrophysics at UWA.
