Dreams of an astronaut

Helen Sharman's dreams of being back on the Mir space station, brought to life through animation.

Day 1

What do astronauts dream of? How does it feel to float above the clouds? In 1991 Helen Sharman became the first Briton in space; in this animation, hand-drawn by Ri animator-in-residence Andrew Khosravani, Sharman shares a dream she has about returning to space, and talks about what it’s like to gaze down on the earth from above.
