A sphere that is defined by a center and a radius. This is one of the simpler volumes and collision checks
are fast, but may yield more falsepositives than using volumes that more tightly enclose the geometry (such as OrientedBoundingBox).
The algorithm for generating the sphere is an implemention of Welzl's minimumvolume sphere algorithm.
