'Bolshoi' supercomputer simulation provides new benchmark for cosmological studies.
Many of the Milky Wayâ€™s ancient stars are remnants of other smaller galaxies torn apart by violent galactic collisions around five billion years ago.
Our Milky Way galaxy only survived because it was already immersed in a large clump of dark matter which trapped gases inside it.
Scientists believe they may now have a better idea of where to search for dark matter thanks to the results of a giant computer simulation reported on Wednesday.
Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for biophysical Chemistry in GÃ¶ttingen establish a new law allowing unlimited optical resolution in fluorescence microscopy.
An international team of astrophysicists led by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics presents the worldwide largest simulation of the universe and an accurate theoretical model for the growth of galaxies and supermassive black holes.
