Twinkle is a 7 year space mission, dedicated to understanding the worlds in our galaxy. Designed for Blue Skies Space Ltd, this 3D motion graphic provides an insight into the exciting interstellar exploration of Twinkle.
Twinkle sits at 450 miles above earth and tracks along a sun-synchronous orbit, completely optimising the power of the sun.
Atmospheric characteristics of distant planets are made clear by the two spectrometers wielded by Twinkle.
Spectroscopy graphs can identify present elements in a planetary atmosphere by measuring the light from its central star.
The second Twinkle spectrometer will capture IR light with longer wavelengths, between 1 and 5 μm. The idea is that the two spectrometers will share one telescope by splitting a single beam of incoming light with a glass plate
This animation was rendered with the incredible CPU powered third party Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D.
Lots of additional 3D renders have been created to promote Twinkle at space and science events too! Check out my social media pages to see more scenes.
The Field of Regard scene was an important scene to get right due to the science facing audience of the video, this couldn't be conceptual and needed to be somewhat accurate to the abilities of Twinkle.
