CNN took a look at the ages of the current U.S. Supreme Court justices — and how that might affect the future of the court — using a virtual courtroom that allowed correspondent Tom Foreman to “shuffle” justices around and crunch various age data.

The segment kicks off with Foreman standing in a virtual recreation of the Supreme Court’s main courtroom with its familiar long bench, columns and red drapes.

Each justice is depicted with a floating headshot behind one of the chairs along with his or her name below — placed how they are seated during court at the start of the segment.
