the large-scale structure of cosmic shocks

Filaments and nodes of the large-scale structure of the universe are enveloped in hydrodynamical shocks. Composite image combining gas temperature and shock mach number. The horizontal scale of the image is ~100 Mpc (~320 million light years), around the second most massive cluster in the TNG100 simulation.

Methods: mass-weighted sph kernel based projections
