Epilogue to Rosetta’s epic mission


Need closure following the end of the Rosetta mission?
The European Space Agency may help – in conjunction with Fish Ladder/Paltige Image, it released an ethereal epilogue to the 2014 film Ambition

It’s an elegy for the end of the Rosetta mission, completed on 30 September as it crashed after a controlled descent into Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which it had been studying for two years. 

The clip depicts an Apprentice, now a Master of Cosmic Origins, exploring a rich and fertile planet and, almost fondly and lovingly, remembering where it all started.
