Je réponds aux questions
What is the title of the film?
How many characters are there in the film?
Two persons: a man and a woman
What can you see?
Trees and rivers, houses and people,
lakes and animals, water, roads and highways,
skyscrapers and buildings, offices, stars and comets,
planets, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter, Rosetta, the probe,
sand, rocks and dust, stones,
Enough! Walk with me!
Perhaps we should find you something a little less challenging!
I don’t undertsand !
I’ve planned everything
Let me do it again!
Once upon a time…
This is a good one, I promise
What is the key to life on earth?
A long time the origin of water and life on the planet
For a long time the origins of water and indeed life on our home planet remained an absolute mystery. So we began searching for answers beyond Earth. “Where could all this water have come from?” In time we turned to comets, one trillion celestial balls of ice, dust, complex molecules, left over from the birth of our Solar System
Once thought of as messengers of doom and destruction and yet so enchanting, if we were to catch one, A staggeringly ambitious plan
Are you talking about the Rosetta mission?
Throw me the probe
So many things could’ve gone wrong
A failure at launch, an error in the calculations, collisions, so many unknowns With the technology we had back then, we may as well have been shooting from a slingshot. and tell me, what was it all for?
Yes, but we also wanted to show what was possible.
I know all this from the archives. There were bigger missions after
Yes, it was the first one to catch a comet
Nothing has changed
we pick ourselves up again
and we adapt
I was watching you earlier you did everything right I destroyed your rock and see how you would react

rendezvous with a comet
How Rosetta is turning science fiction into science fact. Ambition, the film, starring Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones), Aisling Franciosi and ESA Rosetta. Screened on 24 October during the British Film Institute’s celebration of Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder.
Rosetta is speaking to Philae:
Wake up! We’ve got work to do!
Are you ready?
Philae: Yes, I am! Let’s go! (Let us go!)
Comet (in the distance) :
Hurry up! I can’t wait.
I am so happy to have visitors.
Are you ready? I can’t hear you! Speak up, please!
Have you got a problem, Philae?
No, I haven’t but I am very cold and it is dark!
Comet (in the distance):
What ‘s your name ?
My name is Rosetta.
I am famous in Egypt and in the British Museum .
My name is Philae. My name comes from an island on the Nile in Egypt. I’ve got a bilingual stone, a deciphering stone on my island in Egypt. I can help you, I can read and I can decipher for you! It sounds great!
Comet (in the distance):
I am looking forward to meeting you!
Il me tarde de vous rencontrer, au plaisir de vous rencontrer,au plaisir de faire connaissance
Rosetta and Philae:
We are so happy! It is a great journey.
We are so lucky!We’ve got a song for you!
See you soon, little baboon! [U:]
In a while [AI] crocodile! [AI]
Later, little otter!
Peux-tu faire ce questionnaire?
To rendezvous with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko where it will study the nucleus of the comet and its environment for nearly two years, and land a probe on its surface.

Comet rendezvous manoeuvres: May – August 2014
Arrival at comet: 6 August 2014
Philae lander delivery: November 2014
Closest approach to Sun: 13 August 2015
Mission end: 31 December 2015
Launch vehicle: Ariane-5 G+
Launch mass: Orbiter: 2900 kg (including 1670 kg propellant and 165 kg science payload); Lander (Philae): 100 kg
Dimensions: Orbiter: 2.8 x 2.1 x 2.0 m with two 14 metre long solar panels
Partnerships: The lander is provided by a European consortium headed by the German Aerospace Research Institute (DLR). Other members of the consortium are ESA, CNES and institutes from Austria, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
Primary mission objectives:
– Undertake a lengthy exploration of a comet at close quarters to watch how it is transformed by the warmth of the Sun along its elliptical orbit
– Land a probe on a comet’s nucleus for in-situ analysis
Rosetta mission facts:
– Rosetta gets its name from the famous Rosetta stone that led to the deciphering of Egyptian hieroglyphics almost 200 years ago.
– Rosetta’s original target was comet 46P/Wirtanen, but after postponement of the initial launch a new target was set:
– Rosetta was the first spacecraft to fly close to Jupiter’s orbit using only solar cells as its main power source.
– Rosetta will be the first spacecraft to orbit a comet and land on its surface
– The Philae lander is named for the island in the river Nile on which an obelisk was found that had a bilingual inscription that enabled the hieroglyphs of the Rosetta Stone to be deciphered.

In Flanders Fields 1915
World War I poem
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead.
Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If yOU break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If you break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
Dans les champs de Flandre, les coquelicots fleurissent
entre les rangées de croix qui marquent notre place
Et dans le ciel, malgré le rugissement des canons
L’on perçoit encore le chant des courageuses alouettes.
Nous sommes les Morts et pourtant quelques jours auparavant
Nous regardions l’aurore poindre et le soleil rougir en
Se couchant. Nous avons aimé et étions aimés et aujourd’hui
Nous gisons dans les champs de Flandre.
Reprenez notre combat contre l’ennemi:
De nos mains qui chancellent, nous vous confions
Le flambeau qui sera vôtre et que vous tiendrez haut.
Si vous ne croyez plus en nous qui mourrons, jamais nous
Ne retrouverons le repos dans les Champs de Flandre
Où fleurissent les coquelicots
