Illustris Project

(2013-2015 series of cosmological simulations)

The Illustris Project was a series of simulations of the universe that began with conditions at the Big Bang and ran to the current day, producing 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.

A 2016-2018 followup was the IllustrisTNG Project.
