FLAMINGO simulation slice

Background image of simulation of present-day matter from FLAMINGO simulation, with three insets showing detail.
The background image shows the present-day distribution of matter in a slice through the largest FLAMINGO simulation, which is a cubic volume of 2.8 Gpc (9.1 billion light years) on a side. The luminosity of the background image gives the present-day distribution of dark matter, while the colour encodes the distribution of neutrinos. The insets show three consecutive zooms centred on the most massive cluster of galaxies; in order, these show the gas temperature, the dark matter density, and a virtual X-ray observation (from Figure 1 from Schaye et al. 2023).
