Scientists have managed to create a computer model that shows how all the important components of the universe were distributed after the Big Bang. That is, they showed the first seconds after her birth.
Such a model was created by scientists from the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands. Their simulation shows how the intergalactic medium, dust and gas, which are located between galaxies, began to form.
According to Space, the Hydro-BAM computer algorithm was used for the simulation. With its help, calculations of all possible patterns are carried out, which, quite possibly, could occur in the first few seconds after the Big Bang.
So, on the model you can see the distribution of dark matter at an early stage in the life of the Universe, as well as neutral hydrogen, charged with energy gas and other components that are needed for the best understanding of the structure of the Universe.
On the new simulation, as the scientists say, it turned out to accurately reproduce the Lyman-alpha forests. They are called lines of a special form in the spectrum of galaxies. They are created when galactic light is absorbed by hydrogen gas.
According to scientist Francesco Sinigaglia, such computer models provide an opportunity to learn more about the structure and history of the universe. But at the moment there are not yet too powerful resources for a complete understanding of the cosmos.
At the same time, already at this stage, it was possible to obtain a lot of theoretical data, as well as to find out the location of clouds of gaseous hydrogen. With their help, it is possible to study the content of the intergalactic medium from dust and gas. And the main achievement of such a simulation is that the researchers were able to see that dark matter, intergalactic gas and neutral hydrogen are organized in a certain order.
