Bolshoi simulation

(cosmological simulation)

The Bolshoi simulation models the large scale of the observable universe, or at least a significant representative portion of it. It is based upon WMAP5 (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) data and based upon the Lambda-CDM model. It is similar in scope to LasDamas.
