The footage in this video is derived from image sequences from NASA’s Cassini and Voyager missions. I downloaden a large amount of raw images to create the video.

The song is The Cinematic Orchestra -That Home (Instrumental).

“Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October, 2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km. All credit goes to them. I intend to upload a FullHD-version presently.

HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc. All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible, avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.”

Is space amazing or what? Why can’t well go there for a visit. Could someone make that possible already?

“I truly enjoy outer space. It’s absolutely amazing that we now have the ability to send instruments out into the void of the universe to observe all sorts of interesting things. Asteroids! Moons! Planets! Dark matter! This is the perfect opportunity for a Carl Sagan quote:

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

The footage in this little film was captured by the hardworking men and women at NASA with the Cassini Imaging Science System. If you’re interested in learning more about Cassini and the on-going Cassini Solstice Mission, check it out at NASA’s website:”

A wonderful little piece of motion design by Chris Abbas.

Argentinian design studio NASA have updated with both a brand new website and several new works in their portfolio. It’s a trendy display but they have pulled in some really great clients for themselves and really have it dialed in on how to present their work.

It might date back a few months but it is still fun to watch Fluorescent Hill get crazy for the single “Spacious Thoughts” N.A.S.A. featuring the musical talents of Kool Keith and Tom Waits.

For a kind of hit and miss album N.A.S.A. keeps managing to get some great music videos made. This go round features the vocals of Tom Waits and Cool Keith with motion graphics by the Montreal-based Fluorescent Hill.

NASA (North America South America) Project’s latest video “A Volta,” was produced by Santa Monica-based motion/animation/direction house Logan. The video was inspired by the artwork of The Date Farmers and takes place in an ultraviolent upside down world of insanity populated by criminals, prostitutes and drug lords.

Hey wait, that kind of sounds like this world.

NSFW (if people at your work get upset by the ‘F’ word and lego people doing drugs and getting it on).

New single from N.A.S.A. featuring Kanye West, Santigold and Lykke Li. The video was directed, animated and produced by Three Legged Legs. There are some good moments on the album but overall it is kind of ho hum. Just my opinion though.
