Caption: Spiral galaxy. Supercomputer simulation showing the movement of cold gas (light orange) within a spiral galaxy (dark orange). The simulation shows cold gas (10 degrees Kelvin) being compressed by the hotter (1000 degrees Kelvin) gas within the arms of the spiral galaxy. Cold molecular gas clouds are the regions where new stars form. Simulation created by Daniel Price, Exeter University, UK, using SPLASH visualisation software.
