He collaborates with the MELiSSA research program of the European Space Agency (ESA), is a member of the ESA Topical Team Arts & Science, and crew commander of the NASA-funded HI-SEAS Mars simulation in 2013.

His art works have been exhibited in the US, Europe, Southeast Asia and New Zealand.

As a project for the expostion Space Odyssey 2.0 at Z33, Angelo Vermeulen continues working together with a interdisciplinary team of professionals and amateurs. The goal of this collaboration is finishing the build of his DIY spaceship which he started constructing in Deventer in 2012
