    Link: Formation Of The Milky Way - This is as simulated by a computer in Zurich--it`s the world`s first realistic look at the Milky Way.

    How do they know it happened this way?? I don`t understand it, therefore I believe God made it from dust like it says in the Bible.

    Not really. I just wanted to wanted to make a bunch of people say "WHAT?" or "Idiot!!"

    trippy...

    I wonder if anyone on the team later pointed out they may as well have filmed some dirty water going down a plughole and saved 8 months of their time.

    It`s amazing what God can do in only 6-7000 years.

    "It`s amazing what God can do in only 6-7000 years."

    It only took the University of Zurich 8 months.

    Obviously fake. Everybody knows this just poofed into existance when god spoke! except for one particular star among millions of course, our sun, which was created separately, as if god or whoever wrote the bible didn`t know the sun was a star too!

    i`m not sure some people in this forum get that this is just a computer animation...



    and really? 8 months for the University of Zurich and 570 years for one of our computers?

    i think they think too advanced of themselves

    Fact checked by Monty Python.
    "Just remember that you`re standing on a planet that`s evolving, revolving at nine hundred miles an hour. It`s orbiting at 90 miles a second, so it reckoned, a sun that is the source of all it`s power. The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see, are moving at a million miles a day. In an outer spiral arm at forty thousand miles an hour in a galaxy we call the Milky Way."

    Monty Python is/are great.

    Interesting model, hope their calculations were correct running a model spanning billions of years and a hundred thousand light years, off by even a hundred thousandth of a percent and the entire model is compromised.

    @tsiemens I`m guessing you`re a creationist. So it makes more sense that a sky fairy created the universe? Plus what evidence do you have of that besides your ancient book with unverifiable authorship? As a former creationist myself, the answer is nothing. No matter how hard I tried to justify my belief in "god" there is no evidence and never will be.

    @gary

    Our galaxy itself contains 100 billion stars
    It`s 100,000 light-years side-to-side
    It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light-years thick
    But out by us it`s just 3000 light-years wide
    We`re 30,000 light-years from galactic central point
    We go round every 200 million years
    And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
    In this amazing and expanding universe

    Nicely made. But it would take way less that 570 years for us to let our home pc compute the simulation. B/c in 10 years pc`s are about 1000 times faster than today, considering Moore`s law, that pc capacities double each year.

    So if we buy a PC in 2021 it will compute the simulation in about seven months, and in 2031 in about 5 hours.

    To all the religious people who spam scientific discussions here and elsewhere: how would you like it, if I would disturb your church ceremonies with lectures about evolution and preach atheism?

    "And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions"

    WRONG! Our galaxy is one of hundreds of billions at latest estimates for the maximum number of galaxies currently in existence.

    Moore`s Law is about component count, not processing power. Also, it isn`t a law. It`s an observation of past and present. It`s a fallacy to project it indefinitely into the future.

    Klamz: Those numbers may be off because Einstien predicted that we could eventually see so far away that we would see past the curvature of space/time and back in toward our universe`s past. In other words most of what we see on the edge of the universe are `ghosts` of galaxies that no longer exist. What we are seeing that far away is actually a `baby` picture of what the universe was, thus we can not accurately estimate how many galaxies really exist right now.

    @Authentic187 Sure, if the computer happens to be a supercomputer and they know exactly what to simulate.
