Ad Astra is a 7 day space tourism experience, designed for the near future in the year 2030. The expedition takes passengers from the Earth's orbit to the moon, and slingshots around the moon back to earth for a total of 7 days in space. My team's goal was to promote personal agency and social unity aboard the ship, as well as provide a reflective experience that recontextualizes life on Earth.
These are early explorations of the ship's architecture, the shape and function of the sleep pods, and how the space would flow around them.
