A trippy new video for the Macabees directed by UK-based animator David Wilson. The second clip is the making of, which is also worth a watch. (via vimeo)

Stunning New Time Lapse Video from the International Space Station

November 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A few weeks ago a beautiful time lapse video shot from the International Space Station made the rounds. When I saw this new video pop up on Vimeo I assumed it was the same thing, but immediately realized it was something wholly more incredible, not to mention five times longer. This new (or newly edited?) video was shot with a special low-light 4K-camera by the crew of expeditions 28 and 29 onboard the ISS from August to October, 2011 and captures numerous shots of the Aurora Borealis. I recommend clicking HD full-screen for this one.

Welcome to Planet Earth: The UFO Welcome Center

August 21, 2011

After encountering aliens in the 1990s Jody Pendarvis of Bowman, South Carolina began construction on an enormous 30-foot spacecraft in the front yard of his home (this also coincided with his failed campaign for mayor of Bowman, but that’s another story). Lacking any formal plans or blueprints Pendarvis built the entire structure by hand and claims to dwell inside it several months each year, keeping vigilant watch for extraterrestrials through a portal in the roof called the Lookout Center. Documentary filmmaker Mikey Livingston captured this touching portrait of a rather bizarre man in his short film, Welcome to Planet Earth. (via vimeo)

Inner Space is a lovely series of photos by London-based Owen Silverwood that depicts miniaturized spacecraft blasting through confined aquatic landscapes. Thanks Owen for sharing your work with Colossal! (via notcot)

 

 



Design

Rocket Candles

March 2, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Taking inspiration from retro-futuristic space illustration as seen in 1950s era comic book Tintin these Rocket Candles, should be “available soon” from the folks at Design Division. I’m trying to imagine an aesthetically pleasing way for the flame to originate from the proper end, however this solution seems sufficiently awesome.
