Short Film: AMBITION - The Rosetta Mission

Tomek Bagiński's AMBITION, starring Aidan Gillen (Games of Thrones) and Aisling Franciosi (The Fall), plays a key part in supporting the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta mission.

The short film tells the story of one of the most important space exploration endeavours of this decade. Just as Gillen's enigmatic Master encourages Franciosi's Apprentice to seek out the key to life amidst a rugged alien landscape, ESA has been on a decade-long ambitious journey of its own, to unlock the mysteries of a comet and the origins of our Solar System with its Rosetta spacecraft, hundreds of millions of kilometres from Earth.

AMBITION complements the ongoing communication about Rosetta and adds a "human dimension" to the scientific and technological achievements of the mission, which include curiosity, drive and ambition.

Music by: Atanas Valkov. Free soundtrack available here.
