Ambition, A Short Sci-Fi Film Made to Promote the European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission

“Ambition” is a short science-fiction film directed by Polish artist Tomasz Baginski to promote the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission. The short, which stars Game of Thrones actor Aidan Gillen, combines fantasy elements with renders of the space mission to tell the story of the Rosetta quest.

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.
