The Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne was instrumental in achieving the immersive CGI moments. Their incredibly powerful supercomputer system rendered stereo K resolution simulations and images, one of which included a billion independent particles. All of which created these amazing visual moments of our Earth's evolution.
