Explainify Partners with Space Creator for Starship Journey to Mars Animated Series

Top Animation Explainer Video Service Reaches for the Stars in this Four-Part Instagram Series Explaining Space Travel to Mars

Explainify, a leader in animated explainer videos, has partnered with Iliya Pyshnyy, German science communicator and animator known as Spaceiac, for an exclusive Instagram series on the SpaceX Starship Journey to Mars.

Through the simplicity of short-form explainer videos, Explainify and Pyshnyy tell this incredible true story of how SpaceX and NASA will complete Starship’s 30-month mission to Mars.

“We are thrilled to partner with Spaceiac for such an important and timely animated series,” says Derek Gerber, VP at Explainify. “The beauty of animated explainer videos is that they have the ability to tell an overly-complicated story and simplify it in an entertaining and engaging way. To take the highly complex and pare it down to the simplest form is something Explainify does on a daily basis and Starship’s Journey is another creative way of doing that.”
