There might not be anything more awesome than going to space. It's an incredible achievement and the idea of exploring the unknown is fascinating. But as this short animation called Solus by Zac Dixon for Identity Visuals shows, it can get quite lonely. Watch it, it's nearly as good as any feature.
Also, the minimalist design of the animation works so well. The entire thing is so simple but so well done. Even without any dialogue, you understand what the mission of this lonely space ship is.
