Summary : This talk will describe recent progress in the field of cosmic structure formation and will mainly focus on computational problems and methods carrying out such large simulations on the fastest supercomputers available today. It will also present very recent results on a new simulation of the Milky Way dark matter components. There will be a discussion of virtual maps of gamma-ray annihilation radiation seen by a NASA satellite. If this satellite can discover dark matter by its annihilation, this would mark a new very large step in science.
