A new simulation of the universe is a map and a time machine rolled up into one. 

Called Uchuu, which is Japanese for “Outer Space,” the map doesn’t include Casseipoia or the moons of Neptune; instead, it’s a map of large-scale galaxies and galaxy clusters, all glued together by an invisible web of dark matter, which emits no electromagnetic radiation but still exerts a gravitational force upon the universe.
