We would like to thank all customers, colleagues and friends for an exciting year and are looking forward to see you again in 2013. The time until then – more precisely from Saturday, 22 December 2012 until Sunday, 6 January 2013 – our agency will be closed. We wish you a lot of white snow, Merry Christmas, mulled wine, marzipan, relaxation and the best possible start into the New Year!
That space is romantically called an ocean of stars, is not by chance. In the 16th century, seafarers and explorers used the fixed stars in the sky for navigation and orientation. Modern satellite technology also uses the starlit sky to find out the exact position. But who manufactures the corresponding technology? A market leader in this discipline is the Thuringian company Jena-Optronik GmbH. Their star sensors function as the eyes of the satellites. Design & Data produced a film which leads through the fascinating world of the star sensor and visualises the concept.
“Dein Spiegel” is a magazine for children. The topics featured are as diverse as those in “Der Spiegel” for adults. On the DVD enclosed in the new issue 10/2012 “Adventures in Space” many questions are answered in simple words and images. For this DVD, we have researched the most suitable video material from the archives of ESA.
For the German Space Exhibition in Morgenröthe-Rautenkranz, Design & Data created a 30-minute film documentary about the International Space Station ISS.
It shows the elaborate preparations necessary for the start of a carrier rocket, the astronauts‘ training and their daily life in space. All of this shown with exciting, fascinating video footage from the ESA archive.
Wie komme ich an Raumfahrt Medien? Wieviel kostet die Nutzung dieser Inhalte? Oder sind sie kostenlos? Und wie sind die sonstigen Nutzungsbedingungeni? Um etwas Licht in das Dunkel zu bringen, präsentierten wir am 02.09.2012 auf dem Videocamp in Berlin die wichtigsten Informationen zum ESA Video Archiv. Auf Nachfrage der Teilnehmer stellen wir die Präsentation hier online zur Verfügung.
We are currently producing a 10-part web video series for ESA. In each episode of this series, we ask one knowledge question on the topic of outer space. In the two-minute films of the series we ask one question each. Then, we show different people stating their opinion. Afterwards, we answer the question correctly and explain it. It’s fun watching the people answering, because you are sure you wouldn’t know the answer either in front of a camera.
The second film about an ESA location has been rendered and uploaded: This time we’re showing the research centre ESTEC in the Netherlands from its sunniest side. And the short trailer gets you into the mood to travel to the beautiful beach of the North Sea, not only because there’s a golf course nearby.
Europe is preparing a new robot mission which will land on the moon in 2018. For this mission, German engineers of Kayser-Threde GmbH are developing a robot which is able to take moon samples: the MPE. Not only for marketing purposes, elaborate 3D renderings of the little vehicle are necessary. Primarily, it’s about using images close to reality, which specialists like to see because they’re error-free. These images are provided by Design & Data.
