We created this info graphic of an example trip aboard Astra. It shows potential hardships for both crew and passengers, as well as high points in the journey.

This storyboard represents the Astra passenger's 7-day journey. I designed the shots and drew the characters, while Nate Chang created the backgrounds.

Companies like Boeing are interested in the future of space tourism and how these consumer experiences will incorporate into their business. With the sponsorship of Teague and the University of Washington, my team designed a conceptual spacecraft architecture called Astra, a conceptual space tourism experience. Focused on promoting personal agency and social unity aboard small spacecraft, 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.

Through research we determined that a tourist's dedicated personal space is one of the strongest influences on social unity and personal agency in a small space, so we focused on creating a space-efficient bedroom area that would meet these needs.

Teammates: Nate Chang, Carly Cheng, Maximillian Werner
Project duration: 10 Weeks
Project sponsored by Teague, in collaboration with the University of Washington Design Division
