Direct Numerical Simulations of Cosmological Reionization: Birth of the Universe
Michael Norman, Joseph Insley, and Rick Wagner describe set of ground-breaking collaborative astrophysics simulations. "The light from early galaxies had a dramatic impact on the gasses filling the universe. This video highlights the spatial structure of the light's effect, by comparing two simulations: one with a self-consistent radiation field (RHD), and one without (HD). The comparison shown is the relative difference of the density.
