Ambition (2014)


Ambition short film is about 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.

Ambition short film (2014) Review:

This is a beautifully produced short film to draw attention to the Rosetta mission that’s sent a probe to a comet in order to determine if it contains water, and which then could explain how water ended up on earth.
