Density distribution in a (5 Mpc)^3 cube. The infall of several subclusters onto the cluster centre and the resulting compression of matter can be seen. In addition the denser gas stripped off the galaxies moving through the intra-cluster medium is observable. The simulation starts at z=1 and extends to roughly 10 Gyrs into the future.
