Two views of the same object, created with gLucifer, a visualization system developed by scientists from the Monash Cluster Computing center at Monash University, Melbourne and software engineers from the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing, Carlton South, Australia.

The image illustrates the temperature field of a planet's interior, shown with different scales-a linear scale on the left, maximum contrast on the right.
