Inspiration Mars: Mars Flyby Video

We put together a quick video using our current model:



The model was created by our friends priestmangoode in the UK. They put together the capsule/panels/inflatable model for us, and then our friends at Analytical Graphics Inc. , makers of the STK software, cleaned up the model for us a bit and added a DCSS upper stage (reflecting one of our current design options).

The video was created in STK, and put together in Imovie. Music again provided by Astrogator_Mike’s brother, Allan Loucks and comes from his “Point Defiance” score.

Don’t read too much into the spacecraft attitude at this point, I just did something easy and made the long axis follow the Mars-centered velocity direction.
