ESA's first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), designed and produced by Imperative Space, has opened for enrolment on the FutureLearn platform, with online lessons beginning on 8th June 2015.
The MOOC, entitled 'Monitoring Climate from Space', provides an introduction to Earth observation technology and its applications in climate and environmental monitoring.
Imperative Space has been awarded a contract by the UK Space Agency to produce a set of films about ExoMars and the ESA Aurora Programme.
The main film will be a documentary following the work of scientists and engineers, principally in the UK, working on instruments and research for the 2018 ExoMars mission, and the precursor 2016 Trace Gas Orbiter mission.
As part of its continuing work in fulldome film production, Imperative Space has created a full dome animation film for the University of Plymouth in conjunction with Carbon Visuals.
The film is a new version of a data visualisation animation originally produced by Carbon Visuals to communicate the University's carbon reduction strategy.
Imperative Space will provide visuals for a multi-faceted contemporary music and arts event based around the 'Change Ringing' collaboration from composer Laurence Osborn and artist Peter Shenai, to be held at the LimeWharf Annex in east London in December.
Imperative Space has been awarded a contract by ESA to produce a series of training films and additional educational resources on the use of earth observation data for climate monitoring.
The Space Studio school in Banbury, Oxfordshire, which has been supported by Imperative Space, has successfully opened on schedule, on 3rd September 2014. This unique school, for students aged 14-18, is the first of its kind in the world, offering a curriculum oriented around space science and technology.
Imperative Space has produced two more films in its series following 'A Day in the Life of UK Space Scientists and Engineers'. The latest two films, commissioned by the Space Studio Banbury, follow two highly experienced engineers closely linked to the school.
Imperative Space has produced a series of short films revealing 'a day in the life' of leading UK space scientists and engineers. The films open a 'window' on to the breadth of work conducted across this sector in the UK, and provide an insight into the careers and roles available in the sector.
Imperative Space has been commissioned by MTD Group and Kazan Federal University, Russia, to conduct detailed research about radio astronomy facilities around the world, and to advise on the development of a multifaceted 'Astro Park', close to university's existing observatories.
The success of Chris Riley’s spectacular feature-length film First Orbit, re-living the original flight of the first man in space Yuri Gagarin, has been celebrated at the International Astronautical Congress 2011 in Cape Town
