SummaryThree years since its completion, the Millennium Run remains the largest simulation of cosmological structure formation. Over 100 papers  have been written based on its numerical data. More than half of these are by authors who have accessed the data through a web service of the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (GAVO). This is the most complete application yet of Virtual Observatory techniques to the publication of theoretical data.
