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.
Kate Goldberg is currently completing a Bachelor of Arts and Science at Monash University with majors in politics and genetics.
