Some things in life are less common than others – like a pizza delivered to the International Space Station. Or a music video filmed amidst the cosmos. Some answers to questions are even rarer – like what’s the most expensive thing that’s ever been built?

This piece of data visualization was created with the intention to feed readers’ curiosity about space-dwelling. Designed for BBC Future, this interactive infographic explainer was conceived as a visual tool to unearth some of the answers to our questions about space domesticity. Created by Beyond Words Studio in 2015, I was part of the team that worked on the design for this project
