HESTIA, is a short animation showing a plausible scenario for our return to the Moon and how we could build a Base there.
This redux version was updated by Colin Hussey (Narration) and August Zumwalt (Music) Colin's website can be found at http://colinhussey.com

This animation will show many of the technologies that are being developed us build a new home on the Moon.
Made by animation students from Falmouth University, in collaboration with DSEA (http://dsea.uk) . This animation aims to show you how we can return to the Moon for good.
This animation shows an overview of what a base build inside of Shackleton Crater could be like.
