Computerized simulation of the center of our galaxy. Central light year of our galactic center (to the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy). 

Over the past several years, Los Alamos National Laboratory has invested in providing state-of-the art facilities and software tools to help scientists in the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program understand and explore their data. One such facility, the LANL CAVE, is driven by a Linux cluster and equipped with an optical motion tracking system.
