IGM Gas Densities and Temperatures, with Feedback

This animation was rendered in YT, and shows the gas density (left, see units) and temperature (right) around a ~200 kpc physical volume around a Milky Way mass galaxy in formation (see time and scale-bars). Dashed circle marks the virial radius of the galaxy at all times. You can easily see feedback in action and the formation of the “hot halo” around the central galaxy.
