Simulating turbulence. This image shows current intensity and
magnetic field lines in a simulation of the flow of an electrically
conducting fluid. Integrated velocity field lines are shown on the
right.

Advances in computer science are making physics research more visual than ever. The image is taken from this gallery of computer visualisations of everything from human bone analysis to warp bubbles in space.
