Over the last 40 years computer power has increased billion-fold,
enabling ever more detailed recreation of cosmic evolution. This has
provided insight into the material content of our Universe, the
formation of the galaxies, and the emergence of the intricate,
web-like structure we see around us today. Such simulations have shown
that most cosmic matter is of a kind unknown on Earth, and that all
structure grew from weak sound waves in the hot, near-uniform plasma
which emerged from the Big Bang.
