The most detailed model of the universe ever created has been unveiled by computer scientists.

Dubbed 'Illustris: The Next Generation', or IllustrisTNG for short, the computer model boasts never-before-seen levels of details about the forces at work in the universe.

Scientists say the detail and scale provided by the advanced computer simulation has enabled them to observe how galaxies form, evolve, grow, and trigger the creation of new stars over 13 billion years.

They have already used it to provide new insights into how black holes influence the distribution of dark matter, how heavy elements are produced and distributed, and where magnetic fields originate.
