Rendering of the gas velocity in a thin slice of 100 kiloparsec thickness (in the viewing direction), centered on the second most massive galaxy cluster in the TNG100 calculation. Where the image is black, the gas is hardly moving, while white regions have velocities that exceed 1,000 kilometers per second. The image contrasts the gas motions in cosmic filaments against the fast chaotic motions tr...
