Galactic Cataclysm: Caption and Credits

Colliding Galaxy Simulation

Collapsing 500 million years into seconds, this supercomputer simulation shows what happens when two spiral galaxies are pulled towards each other gravitationally and collide.

This test animation for an giant-screen IMAX movie, soon be released at a major U.S. museum., was based on the numerical output of an actual supercomputer simulation performed at NCSA.
