Multiple spots in a simulated galaxy glow brightly at submillimeter wavelengths of light

Multiple spots in a simulated galaxy glow brightly at submillimeter wavelengths of light In the new issue of journal Nature, a team of scientists including Dusan Keres (Physics and CASS, UCSD) presents a new supercomputer simulation that can help explain the origin of some of the most extreme objects in the universe, bright submillimeter galaxies.

These objects can form stars with rates up to 1000 times faster than our own Galaxy. Read more in the UCSD press release, an article in LA Times or the paper and related News & Views in Nature.
