While their focus is on VFX, you can also se a good amount of practical effects, sets, and space suits.  

One aspect I really like is that they used practical suits and helmets, but added CG visors in post.  This means you don't have reflections of the lights and crew (something I often watch for and see frequently in movies with reflective surfaces) and the actors get to stay a bit cooler and breathe easier.

What are some of your favorite pairings of practical and digital?
