Durham University’s Institute for Computational Cosmology becomes an Intel® Parallel Computing Center.
The Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC), part of Durham University, is world renowned for its research on how galaxies form. Researchers perform large cosmological simulations that follow how stars and galaxies grow from tiny imperfections in the big bang. The goal of the institute is to generate a virtual universe, creating such realistic galaxies that it is almost impossible to distinguish them from systems in the real world.
