The Galactica database results of heavy numerical simulations computed in various fields of computational astrophysics (solar magnetohydrodynamics, star-planet interactions, star formation, galaxy formation, galaxy mergers).


The Galactica project gives observers and computational astrophysicists access to the results of these numerical simulations, which could be useful to help prepare or analyze observations or compare with other numerical studies.

The Galactica database is developed at CEA Irfu.
