China uses the world’s fastest supercomputer to create the largest ever simulation of the universe using 10 TRILLION digital particles

China uses the world’s fastest supercomputer to create the largest ever simulation of the universe using 10 TRILLION digital particles:

  • Sunway TaihuLight modelled the birth and early expansion of the universe 
  • The machine simulated the cosmos by breaking it’s mass down into particles
  • It then modelled quadrillions of these particles interacting with one another
  • The supercomputer used 10 million CPU cores to create its version of the universe – known as N-body simulation
