In 1991, astronaut Helen Sharman became the first Briton in Space. The Royal Institution (https://www.youtube.com/user/TheRoyalInstitution) interviewed Sharman for their series “A Place Called Space” and created this whimsical animated short, illustrating her vivid dreams of space and how she feels when she wakes up: “I’m always very disappointed that I’ve woken up because I want to be back in space.”

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
