Magneticum Pathfinder Collage

The different boxes of Magenticum Pathfinder as overview. Zooming from the largest scales (GPc scales) into galaxy clusters (Mpc scales) and even further down onto individual galaxies (tens of kpc scales).

Box0/mr

The picture shows a visualization of Box0/mr from the Magneticum simulation set. The shown region spans a total size of 3800 Mpc. At z=0.0 it contains a total number of 1.86*1011 dark matter, gas, star and black hole particles. Visualized is the gas which fills the space between the galaxies (color coded according to its temperature from cold/brown to hot/light blue) together with the galaxies and stars forming in the simulation (colored in white).

Box2b/hr

The picture shows a visualization of Box2b/hr from the Magneticum simulation set. The shown region spans a total size of 1000 Mpc. At z=0.2 it contains a total number of 5.4*1010 dark matter, gas, star and black hole particles. Visualized is the gas which fills the space between the galaxies (color coded according to its temperature from cold/brown to hot/light blue) together with the galaxies and stars forming in the simulation (colored in white).

The lower picture shows a closeup onto the most massive galaxy cluster formed within the simulation.

Box2/hr most massive cluster

The picture shows a visualization of the most massive cluster in Box2/hr from the Magneticum Pathfinder simulation set. The shown region spans a total size of 25 Mpc. Visualized is the gas which fills the space between the galaxies (color coded according to its temperature from cold/brown to hot/light blue) together with the galaxies and stars forming in the simulation (colored in white). The simulation resolves more than 700 galaxies within the cluster, of which 300 contain a central, supermassive black hole.

Movies

Box2/hr stereo fly through its evolution

The picture shows a visualization of the time evolution of Box2/hr from the Magneticum Pathfinder simulation set. The view at the beginning spans a total size of 500 Mpc and then zooms onto the most massive cluster forming within the simulation. Visualized is the gas which fills the space between the galaxies (color coded according to its temperature from cold/brown to hot/light blue) together with the galaxies and stars forming in the simulation (colored in white).
