This is a virtual flight through the Millennium Simulation. The whole distance of the flight corresponds to 2.4 billion light years. We approach a galaxy supercluster, fly around it and turn back into the virtual universe. You can see all the main structures of the universe: filaments, voids, galaxy clusters and superclusters.
