A clarification and an apology (For James and Colin)

Further to my post on Saturday regarding the super computer simulation of 2.5% of the visible universe both James Higham and Colin Campbell rightly picked me up on the fact that I hadn’t noted exactly what was hoped to be achieved by running the simulation.

In brief they are looking to identify more of the constituent parts / elements (normal matter) that make up the universe as much is yet to be directly observed. It is hoped that the simulation will provide a significant step in identification.

Sorry guys, did the who, what and where but forgot the why.

Mea maxima culpa.
