NASA’s Roman Space Telescope will open up the universe in a way that has never been seen before.

Can the universe be rewinded? It is impossible to go into the past. However, scientists and researchers keep trying to go back in time. Now it’s being said that a new simulation shows how NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will turn back the cosmic clock, revealing the evolving universe in ways that will be revealed by May 2027. Never was possible before launch.

“With its ability to rapidly image large areas of space, Roman will help. We Understand how the universe evolved from a primordial sea of ​​charged particles into the complex network of vast cosmic structures we see today. Reports by the NASA In particular, combining the larger Roman view with the wider wavelength coverage of the Hubble Space Telescope and the more detailed observations of the James Webb Space Telescope will provide a more comprehensive view of the universe.

The simulation covers a two-square-degree patch of sky, about 10 times the apparent size of the full moon, containing more than 5 million galaxies. It is based on a well-tested model of galaxy formation that represents our current understanding of how the universe works.

Using a highly efficient technique, the team can simulate tens of millions of galaxies in less than a day – something that could take years using traditional methods. When Roman launches and starts delivering real data, scientists can compare it to different models like this, and put their models to the ultimate test. This will help unravel the physics of galaxy formation, dark matter – a mysterious substance seen only through its gravitational effects – and more, the research organization said.

“Roman’s panoramic view will help us see what the universe was like at different stages and fill many gaps in our understanding.” NASA said.

The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope is managed at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, with scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech/IPAC in Southern California, the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, and various research institutions. A science team consisting of
