First realistic virtual universe created

Astronomers have successfully created the first realistic virtual universe using a computer simulation called "Illustris," which can recreate 13 billion years of cosmic evolution in a cube 350 million light-years on a side with unprecedented resolution.

Computer simulation supports `holographic` theory describing a black hole

A research group composed of four researchers has tested numerically a "holographic" theory, which was conjectured to describe accurately the dynamical phenomena occurring in a black hole.

Universe exists within a computer simulation from the future?

Scientists are conducting experiments to discover whether the universe exists within a Matrix-style computer simulation created by super computers of the future.
