Ambition

Whenever humankind attempts to do something, it usually ends up in failure on the first go. But we keep trying, for eternity lies in our hearts. We are ambitious creatures for better or for worse and that trait has allowed us to become the most successful creatures on this side of the universe, capable of subverting natural processes if we wished and molding things to our desires,

This is illustrated well in 'Ambition', a short sci-fi film that screened on 24 October 2014 during the British Film Institute’s celebration of Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, at the Southbank, London. A collaboration between the European Space Agency and Platige Image, 'Ambition' also features a cameo of Europe's the recently successful  cometary mission Rosetta. You can catch updates on this singular mission to comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko (I kid you not, that is its name!) here.

Enjoy and stay curious!
