Illustris Project

(series of cosmological simulations)

The Illustris Project is a series of simulations of the universe that begin with conditions at the Big Bang and run to the current day, and produced snapshots that correspond in many ways to the observable universe, and in visual form, are now popular illustrations in explaining various aspects of the universe's history. The main simulation used 19 million cpu hours.
