Critical Turbulence

Turbulence is ubiquitous in nature. 99.9 percent of the visible matter in the universe is in a state of plasma. In plasmas, colliding Alfvèn waves generate turbulent patterns of electric current density. This happens all over the universe: in the stars and in the interplanetary space. Can you see any patterns?

Produced: Rendering of a cutting-edge simulation of plasma turbulence.
