|Input different values for the cosmos and see how the Universe changes.
The data is divided up between the low redshift (velocity) supernovae and the high velocity supernova. Click on those buttons to turn on/off that data.The horizontal axis (Log z) represents the redshift, or velocity of the objects, while the vertical axis (DM) is a measure of their distance.
Matter Density (Omega) is a measure of the mass density (kind
of like the gravity) of the Universe.
In this simulation, the Universe is "flat", which means that the values of Omega and Lambda add up to 1.
To reset the values to their default settings, press the "Reload" button on your browser, while holding down the shift key (this is true for Netscape, I don't know what Internet Explorer does).
