This project is solving the Why We Explore challenge.

The Battle of Indifference is a film which tackles a philosophical approach to explaining why we explore space. Space is indifferent to mankind, but it is in our nature as humans to care.

Creation: The 3D space ship used in the film was created and animated using Autodesk Maya 2013 from recycled 3D models from the NASA website, specifically of the high resolution ISS and space shuttle models:

The asteroid was sculpted in Zbrush and animated in Maya.
