This happens to me too, most any time my sim explores space or woohoos in the rocket. It hasn't mattered what level my sim's skill is, what rocket I use or what upgrades my rocket has. The quick fix I use is just to have the sim change clothes using a mirror or dresser or even clicking on the space the sim should be. Before I figured out that just changing clothes would fix it, I had the sim shower to bring them back. It doesn't fix the underlying issue, but at least you can see your sim.
Bumping the thread to say that this is still happening to my sim. Send them on a space journey, they come back invisible. They're vampires if that makes a difference. Changing their clothes and showering used to work to get them back but it no longer does. I tried resetting him using the cheat panel and that didn't work. Traveling did the trick, but it's annoying and interferes with a bunch of other stuff I have going on.
Sul Sul @aimalyn!!!
First of all, thanks for calling out that this is still happening in your game!
Our team has been looking into this issue, but we were not able to reproduce it so far.
If you don't mind, would you be able to provide us with your save file so we can investigate this further? This would actually help us a lot!
If you're up for it, here are the instructions on how you can share files with our team.
Thanks so much and Happy Simming!

@aimalynIt happens to me too. Whenever a Sim uses the rocket for whatever they are doing, they come back invisible. This happens to regular Sims and vampires. Never tried with an alien. The only way I can fix it is traveling to another area or by clicking in 'Manage Worlds' and then coming back. Can't interact directly with the invisible Sims, so, isn't possible change clothes. I tried a new game free of mods. Nothing changed.
It happens to me when I send my sim to excersize in space and not with space travel. I only have the base game, no cc with all the upgrades. Happens 100% of the times AND Is solved by showering, going to work or traveling again.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.

I used to have the problem, on my former Laptop. It met the specifics of the game, but just barely, and I had to play on low settings. My Graphics card, and Memory quite often had problems running properly. Don't know if any of these things could be the problem, but I've never had the problem since I bought a newer machine. - Even though, I've brought the saved Games from the old machine over. Always made certain, that there were shower options on the Rocket premises, for them to turn visible again, fast.
