I created these illustrations using photographs of a full scale mock-up of the Huygens probe, which was on display at the Space Foundation’s Discovery Center in Colorado Springs. The photos were placed in a 3-D scene. I modeled the parachute and used soft-body dynamics to lay the parachute model on to the 3-D surface.
