The New Scientist just released a bunch of amazing scientific simulations courtesy of NASA/Swift/Cruz deWilde of a variety of cosmic events. The video above shows how astronomers think light from a gamma-ray burst called 080319B was released. A narrow jet punched though the outer layers of a collapsing star, then followed by a wider, less energetic beam.
Enough data has been collected from the Hubble (and other) telescopes and computer simulations are sophisticated enough now to visualize some of the universe’s great mysteries.
