About the work: “Orbits of Psyche” visualizes the various orbits that the Psyche spacecraft will be taking around the asteroid once it arrives in 2029. The animation is inspired by vintage astronomy and astrology posters, which typically include a minimal color palette as well as value and texture through cross hatching. As the spacecraft completes each orbit, information about the orbit appears, including the focus of the orbit and its expected duration, as well as information about the different instruments used to study Psyche.
