SPACE DESCENT VR

WITH TIM PEAKE

DIRECTION | DESIGN | ANIMATION by Bandito

In collaboration with Alchemy, Bandito created the VFX and Design for the award winning 'Space Descent with Tim Peake', a VR experience at the London Science Museum. Tim Peake takes audiences on a virtual reality mission that puts you in the pilot’s seat of a Soyuz capsule — just like the one that brought him home - retracing the 400km journey that brought him back from

the ISS to Earth. Reel music by Jack Fletcher

PROCESS

SCREEN GRAPHICS

Designs were loosely based on the monitors found in the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. We wanted to add a touch of realism to the experience, but combine this with explainer style graphics to assist Tim Peakes voiceover.
