Galaxy Simulations Are at Last Matching Reality
Since the earliest days of computers, scientists have looked into their potential for simulating the cosmic processes that led to the creation of the near limitless amounts of galaxies in the observable universe. The shortcomings of previous computer technology limited their practical applications in this regard. However, thanks to the levels of processing power offered by modern computer hardware, along with refinement in algorithm scripting, simulations are reaching a point where they can begin to accurately replicate the mathematical values involved with the development of an individual galaxy. What’s more is that computer technology is advancing exponentially, meaning that progress is accelerating at a truly impressive rate.
