The applet is showing a globe described as 1560 separate lines. The lines connect 762 points in three dimesional space in a very specific way. Each time the screen is updated, the 762 points are rotated around one or two axes in three dimensional space, and then given 'perspective'. Then, each of the 1560 lines finds the two points it is associated with, figures out how bright it should draw itself, and then draws itself.
