Ambition is a short film to promote the Rosetta mission by the European Space Agency (ESA). Directed by Tomek Bagiński, filmed in Iceland, and stars Aidan Gillen and Aisling Franciosi.
Rosetta is a space probe launched in March 2004 for a detailed study of Comet 67P. It reached its destination last August. According to ESA, it will be the first mission in history to rendezvous with a comet, escort it as it orbits the Sun, and deploy a lander to its surface.
You can learn more about Rosetta on its official website here or read a bit on wiki instead. Set aside the mission, it’s a pretty nice video on its own – it encourages people to learn, explore, and be brave.
Update – The spacecraft ended its mission by hard-landing on the comet in September 2016. Not sure if it has collected any useful data about the comet, but it has achieved many “first” in space exploration besides the few mentioned above. Seems like a successful mission overall.
