Filamentary structure of hot gas

This figure shows the filamentary structure of the hot gas that represents part of the warm-hot intergalactic medium (WHIM). It is based on a simulation extending over more than 200 million light years. The red and orange regions have the highest densities and the green regions have lower densities.
