Quantum simulators are devices that actively use quantum effects to answer questions about model systems and, through them, real systems.
With the Illustris Simulation, astrophysicists have accurately modeled the correct mix of spiral, elliptical and irregular galaxies to show the origins of all elements more complex than hydrogen and helium.
