A Disk Galaxy's Life History in Two Minutes

This cosmological simulation follows the development of
a single disk galaxy over about 13.5 billion years,
from shortly after the Big Bang to the present time.
Colors indicate old stars (red), young stars (white and
bright blue) and the distribution of gas density (pale
blue); the view is 300,000 light-years across. The
simulation ran on the Pleiades supercomputer at NASA's
Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., and
required about 1 million CPU hours. It assumes a
universe dominated by dark energy and dark matter.
