Imperative Space has overseen production of the live video content and provided additional material for the Science Museum's spectacular all day public event to celebrate the launch to the ISS of the first British-ESA astronaut, Major Tim Peake.
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.
ESA has selected Imperative Space to lead an in-depth research and demonstration project aimed at testing techniques and methodologies in crowd-sourcing and citizen science when working with a range of 'observations from satellites'.
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 provided design and science communication advisory services for the Aga Khan Academies, an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network.
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 been engaged by the Aspirations Academies Trust (AAT) to provide video production, design and advisory support for their forthcoming Space Studio School, due to launch in September 2014.
Imperative Space has been commissioned to produce a technically challenging, high-resolution video installation for the 28-screen 'Hyperwall' at the Satellite Applications Catapult, at Harwell, Oxfordshire.
Imperative Space has been commissioned by Loughborough College and the National Space Academy to produce a short film about their new higher apprenticeships in space engineering.
Imperative Space has been asked to join the new ventures programme at the Open Data Institute, to take forward a project based around earth observation data.
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.
Imperative Space associate Christopher Phillips has announced a project to help revitalise astronomy education and stimulate wider science education in schools in challenging environments.
When YouTube needed robust educational expertise and in-depth knowledge of the space sector, they hired members of the Imperative Space team, through GovEd Communications, to help design their global Space Lab competition.
We have provided a new collection of multimedia resources for ESERO-UK, consisting of a mixture of archive footage from historic space programs, and more recent material filmed on board the International Space Station.
The BBC's Bang Goes The Theory Live roadshows have been using one of Imperative Space's portable Space Signposts at science events across the country during 2011.
Imperative Space has helped to arrange a series of lectures by leading Shuttle engineer Matt Melis, at venues around the UK during October 2011. The events included talks at the London Science Festival (introduced by Chris Riley), BIS and Astrium.
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
