Featured Visualization

Asteroid Impact

Two time-steps of a simulation of a 250m asteroid impacting the ocean surface. Volume rendering combined with calibrated opacity levels, enables researchers to visualize the structures of both the water vapor (blue) and asteroid fragments (orange). Enabling scientists to see multiple volumetric structures facilitates understanding of the interaction of the physical materials.
