A detailed illustration of space debris around the Earth, which is visualising real orbital data of some 14,000 tracked objects, including satellites, rocket bodies, and small bits of junk.
Our latest animation for Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, showing an animation of their NovaSAR satellite, capturing data over Adelaide, Australia. This was based upon previous illustration work we did of the satellite. More details on the mission here.
We created a series of illustrations of FLEX (FLuorescence EXplorer), which is an ESA mission to monitor the global steady-state chlorophyll fluorescence in terrestrial vegetation. FLEX was selected for funding on 19 November 2015 and will be launched in 2022. Airbus Defence & Space are the prime contractor on this project and commissioned us to
We created this animation for Surrey Space Centre, who built the InflateSail cubesat which demonstrated an inflatable dragsail for quick de-orbiting of small spacecraft. The sail had an area of 10m2, and the cubesat successfully deorbited 72 days after launch. More detail on the mission here.
Our latest animation for Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, showing their Lunar Pathfinder mission, which aims to deliver a suite of cubesats to lunar orbit, and act as a communications hub back to the Earth. It is a pathfinder mission, testing technology for a more comprehensive lunar communications network, enabling future missions. More details and a
We updated the animation for Surrey Space Centre to show the launch and deployment sections, featuring a SpaceX Falcon9/Dragon capsule, and deployment from the International Space Station, via the Japanese module. The satellite is currently built and awaiting launch. It puts into context the issue of space junk, and shows how Surrey Space Centre, in
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
