Below are a set of movies of the bullet cluster collision. Each movie consists of three panels. The top panel shows the mass distribution, with the log of the baryon mass being shown in color, and the log of the dark matter mas being shown in white contour lines. The separation of the dark matter from the baryons can be clearly seen. The center panel shows the log of the baryon temperature, and the bottom panel shows the log of the magnetic field.
This file, shows a movie of the bullet cluster simulation. This represents the best-case initial conditions.
This file, shows a movie of the bullet cluster simulation, carried several Gigayears (Gy) into the future. It shows the future evolution and coalescence of the two clusters.
