Creating the universe in a computer

Computer simulations help cosmologists unlock the mystery of how the universe evolved. Astronomers face a unique problem. While scientists from most fields can conduct experiments—particle physicists build massive particle colliders to test their theories of subatomic material, and microbiologists probe the properties of microbes on petri dishes—astronomers cannot conduct experiments with the stars and planets.
