Laser Interferometer Space Antenna

Concept visualisation of the planned Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission. The trio of spacecraft will form the first space-based gravitational wave observatory designed to detect and measure tiny ripples in the fabric of spacetime, caused by events such as black hole mergers.

Gravity as the Warping of Space-time

Einstein’s model of gravity, showing the curvature and warping of space-time caused by the presence of mass.

Coronary Angioplasty and Stent Insertion

3D animation of a coronary angioplasty procedure which is used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (the main blood vessels supplying the heart).

James Webb Space Telescope

Launched in December 2021, the next generation science observatory succeeded the Hubble Space Telescope in breakthrough science in all fields of astronomy including our origins, the formation of stars and planets, to the birth of the first galaxies in the early Universe.

JWST – Unfolding in space

Animation showing the James Webb Space Telescope unfolding from its launch configuration in to its final form in space.

Earth’s Magnetic Field

Animation simulating how the Earth’s magnetic field deflects solar wind and charged particles from the Sun.

DNA Double Helix

Visualisation of the DNA double-helix molecule

String Theory

String Theory, visualisation of the theoretical physics describing all subatomic particles as vibrating strings.

New Horizons flypast of Pluto

New Horizon’s mission to Pluto and the flypast of the dwarf planet in the summer of 2015

Quantum Field Theory

The mathematical framework which underlies the Standard Model of Particle Physics and describes all known fundamental particles and the forces of nature by the interaction of vibrating fields.

Gravitational Waves

Ripples in the fabric of spacetime caused by accelerating massive bodies such as neutron stars.

Gravity as the 3D Warping of Space-Time

3D visualisation showing the curvature and warping of space-time caused by the presence of mass in Einstein’s 4D model of the gravitational field established in his General Theory of Relativity.

Wormhole through Spacetime

Visualisation of a tunnel connecting distant points in Spacetime. Commonly referred to as a “Wormhole”, it describes a special solution of the Einstein Field Equations.
