We used the latest version of the DNEG Gravitational Renderer to create some of the show’s visuals. This is a proprietary tool that enables us to model some of the most accurate images of black holes ever created.
It was originally developed in collaboration with Nobel Prize-winning physicist Kip Thorne for use on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, back in 2014.
The tool allows artists to create stunning images of black holes using a combination of astrophysics, mathematics and computer-science to simulate the distortion of light by curved space-time. Check out the Interstellar show page for more details.
