Ambition – Nice little sci-fi short which features the Rosetta Mission – Tomek Bagiński

Tomek Bagiński’s AMBITION, starring Aidan Gillen (GAME OF THRONES) and Aisling Franciosi (THE FALL), plays a key part in supporting the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Rosetta mission.

The short film tells the story of one of the most important space exploration endeavours of this decade. 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.

AMBITION complements the ongoing communication about Rosetta and adds a “human dimension” to the scientific and technological achievements of the mission, which include curiosity, drive and ambition.

Microsoft drops Nokia name for-ever………but we all know the 3210 was the pinnacle of mobile phone tech..

best phone ever

Microsoft drops the Nokia brand name in favour of it’s Lumia brand of lightbulbs, sorry phones… but we all know the 3210 was the best phone ever – back when phones were for communicating with people – amiright?

It was just this gorgeous little sliver of silver – an unassuming little slab of technology that didn’t keep nudging you with information about nothing at all – it just did it’s little job – calls and texts – it was solid in feel and design, it was lean, it worked, kept it’s charge like nothing does these days.. in short it’s what technology was supposed to do all along – help you, but leave you feeling like you were still a human being.

Much could be learned from this little piece of history…
