We created this animation for Surrey Space Centre, who built the Alsat nano cubesat which was successfully launched on 26th September 2016. It is a testbed for some novel technologies, which are highlighted in the animation. More detail on the mission here.
We produced this illustration of a small two-stage rocket, a Nanosat Launch Vehicle (NLV) for the British Interplanetary Society (BIS). It’s aim is to deliver small payloads to orbit, and has an approximate height of 9m, and is fuelled by liquid oxygen (LOX) and Refined Petroleum 1 (RP-1), a type of kerosene. It is based
We created this animation for Surrey Space Centre, who are one of 22 projects at the Royal Society’s Summer Exhibition, which features exhibits, talks and activites for all ages. It puts into context the issue of space junk, and shows how Surrey Space Centre, in collaboration with others in the space sector, are building missions
We’ve just updated our space demo reel on the main page to include our most recent work from the year or so. Watch it in full HD! Our 2016 Space showreel: You can still see our other showreels here: Engineering showreel 2012 Science showreel 2012
A series of two illustrations and an infographic created for Airbus Defence & Space to visualise their Biomass satellite, which will measure forest and vegatation in 3D over the entire globe, for the evaluation of biomass and tracking of its change over time.

Our latest animation for Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, showing their novel GMP-A satellite platform, which can hide away inside a launch adaptor ring, unfurling into a fully functioning geostationary communications satellite.
Animation of a zoom out from the inside of a single atom to the entire galaxy. The first scene shows a single quark, one of three making up a proton (red) in the nucleus of an atom. The nucleus is surrounded by electron shells (blue). The atom is one making up one of the
We created two high resolution illustrations for the National Physical Laboratory to publicise their TRUTHS satellite. TRUTHS will contain very precise, calibrated instruments, which will give a baseline for calibrating other earth observation satellites. By comparing measurements, the accuracy of satellites such as ESA’s sentinel series will be greatly improved, leading to much better data
We produced two illustrations of the upgraded SSTL-300 satellite developed by Surrey Satellite Technology, three of which will be used in the DMC3 mission, providing high resolution imaging and daily revisits to aid in disaster monitoring. See our SSTL-300S1 illustration on Flickr And the constellation of three SSTL-300S1s in orbit
We produced two illustrations of the Formosat-7 satellite developed by Surrey Satellite Technology, which will be used for weather forecasting and operated by Taiwan and the USA.
