To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Manifest worked with Horizn Studios to unveil a design study for the world’s first luggage for space travel, ‘Horizn One’ developed in collaboration with the youngest astronaut in training Alyssa Carson.
Horizn Studios’ team of ten engineers and designers, in consultation with Carson, asked themselves what future space travellers would need from their luggage to make those journeys seamless and enjoyable: how will they pack, and how their luggage would operate in zero gravity.
The end result was truly epic. An innovative design study – the first-of-its-kind space travel case – which delivers a range of features to make it perfectly suited to seamless space travel.
‘Horizn One’ boasts a flexible graphene-enhanced carbon fibre shell makes it the lightest luggage developed so far, while the electromagnetic base allows it to secure to the floor and walls of the spacecraft for easy access in zero gravity.
The luggage also includes biometric security, an inbuilt smart screen to enable travellers to stay in touch and share experiences via video with loved ones on Earth, wireless charging, vacuums for storage efficiency and even the power to keep your dirty laundry fresh.
Alongside showcasing the incredible new design study, we also wanted to shine a light on the other amazing, awe-inspiring part of the campaign: Alyssa.
An 18 year-old astronaut in training (and the world’s youngest at that), Alyssa is known all over the solar system by her official call sign ‘Blueberry’ and aims to be the first person to set foot on Mars – a mission she’s had her heart set on since she was 10 years old.
We secured interviews with Press Association, Stylist and the Mail Online with this pioneering young astronaut, to discuss her incredible journey into space travel and her collaboration with Horizn Studios to design a case to be both striking and functional for a future where space tourism is the norm.
