The APOSTLE Project

Evolution of gas density

Evolution of gas density (red colours) and stellar density (blue colours) in a comoving volume of side length 150 × 200 kpc/h.

About

The APOSTLE (A Project Of Simulating The Local Environment) began as an offshoot of the EAGLE collaboration.

It was started by Till Sawala, Carlos Frenk, Azadeh Fattahi and Julio Navarro in 2013, and has now grown to a large international collaboration. To date, more than 20 papers based directly on APOSTLE data have been written by more than 30 different co-authors from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Finland, Germany, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, the UK and the US.
