Solar System Formation 5MB

This is a time compressed simulation of the inner planets forming near the time of solar ignition. Because of the magnitude and time scale involved in the actual formation of the solar system, it is not possible to portray it completely accurately on a human scale.  This is a work in progress made from a software particle simulation generated with state of the art computers and software pushed to their absolute limits. This version was created in a rapid development schedule and what your seeing here are draft quality renders at 15 frames per second. Check back here often to see improvements and updates and to check on availability for broadcast or institutional presentation.
