The following images were created using S2PLOT. All images are copyright Swinburne University of Technology unless otherwise indicated, and should not be used without permission.


6dF Galaxy Survey


50,000 galaxies (v < 15,000 km/s) from the 6dF Galaxy Survey second data release (Jones et al. 2005). With S2PLOT, it is simple to create an interactive redshift-space cone diagram.

Cosmological Simulation: Dark Matter Halo


In this example, the sub-halo structure in a Dark Matter halo is clearly visible. Along with coloured points for each particle, a real-time volume rendering helps to emphasise the regions of highest mass density.

Cosmological Simulation: Merger Tree


A merger tree showing the assembly of a galaxy over time from the Millennium Run (Springel et al. 2005). Colour indicates the formation epochs of progenitor halos.

Instructional Diagrams: Solar System Orbits


S2PLOT can be used to create simple instructional diagrams, which are particularly useful when viewed interactively. In this case, the inclined, elliptical orbits of Pluto and Halley's Comet are seen with respect to the 8 planets of the Solar System.

Solar System Objects: Asteroid Kleopatra


Four views of the asteroid Kleopatra.

Creations: Abstract


A slightly more abstract view of a cosmological simulation - an homage to the power of S2PLOT!
