Jim Bissell, Production Designer of The Midnight Sky and our Steve
Our Steve got a teensy bit excited about the engineering in the film and we've indulged him big time in this episode. Happily, he's the kind of guy you want to indulge and he's come up with something rather special.
Not only does he bring you an interview with Jim Bissell, who designed the space craft (the Aether) in The Midnight Sky, but he got in touch with Professor Ben Hicks of the Design and Manufacturing Futures Lab at the University of Bristol.
Steve and Prof Ben hatch a plan to work out the engineering of the Aether if it were a real life space craft...Stay tuned for those diagrams coming soon.
The Aether - could it really work?
Meanwhile, in "the shed" opinions are mixed but all found something to love in The Midnight Sky.
