Friends in Space

Friends in Space  has been the first social network to extend beyond Earth; a 6 months-long open window to make new friends from all over the world and join astronaut
Samantha Cristoforetti in her expedition to the International Space Station.

Friends in Space has been online from November 24th, 2014 thru June 11th, 2015, we conceived, designed and developed it at Accurat.

On my Medium post about the project, I explained how Friends in Space It has been a proof of concept to investigate how digital connections between people can be aesthetically pleasant and leave room for wonder, poetry and imagination: an exploration on the power of a beautiful interactive experience to trigger people to use and be part of a digital application.
