An image from a computer simulation depicting the universe 300 million years after the Big Bang. The first stars blew bubbles of ionized radiation (blue) into the surrounding primordial gas (green).

Well, a few moments later anyhow.

Super duper computer simulations of the Universe's birth - or formation of galaxies and stars more precisely. Take a look at these wonder simulations below. Freakin' awesome! :-)

The computer simulation designed by Dr. Yoshida et al. demonstrates how gas and dust came together in the early universe to form the first stars after the Big Bang.
