Psyche: Discovery to Expedition

Date: May 22, 2019
Major: art & design

Genre/Medium: stop-motion animation with paper

About the work: This stop-motion animation is an artistic representation of how Italian astronomer Annibale de Gasparis discovered (16) Psyche in 1852, and it draws a comparison to the launch of the Psyche spacecraft in 2022, led by Lindy Elkins-Tanton. This piece shows how big of a deal it is that this mission is happening and how far space discovery has come in such a relatively short amount of time.
