Using Processing to Visualize Space Exploration

(Read Time: About 3 Min.)

The Challenge:

Could the total distance traveled by a NASA space shuttle have reached Mars? How far did each shuttle go in relation to our solar system? As an inaugural project to get our digital projects studio thinking and managing a project, we used a dataset that recorded the distance traveled by each space shuttle launch from 1981 – 2011 and worked to visualize the total miles traveled for each shuttle as a hypothetical race to the red planet.
