Underline the words and expressions you understand :
This is the creation story of Ngiyaampaa country, as well as the land belonging to Eaglehawk and Crow.
Now long, long time ago of course, in the beginning, when there was no people, no trees, no plants whatever on this land, “Guthi-guthi”, the spirit of our ancestral being, he lived up in the sky.
So he came down and he wanted to create the special land for people and animals and birds to live in.
So Guthi-guthi came down and he went on creating the land for the people-after he’d set the borders in place and the sacred sights, the birthing places of all the Dreamings, where all our Dreamings were to come out of.
Guthi-guthi put one foot on Gunderbooka Mountain and another one at Mount Grenfell.
And he looked out over the land and he could see that the land was bare. There was no water in sight, there was nothing growing. So Guthi-guthi knew that trapped in a mountain-Mount Minara-the water serpent, Weowie, he was trapped in the mountain. So Guthi-guthi called out to him, “Weowie, Weowie”, but because Weowie was trapped right in the middle of the mountain, he couldn’t hear him.
Guthi-guthi went back up into the sky and he called out once more, “Weowie”, but once again Weowie didn’t respond. So Guthi-guthi came down with a roar like thunder and banged on the mountain and the mountain split open. Weowie the water serpent came out. And where the water serpent travelled he made waterholes and streams and depressions in the land.
So once all that was finished, of course, Weowie went back into the mountain to live and that’s where Weowie lives now, in Mount Minara. But then after that, they wanted another lot of water to come down from the north, throughout our country. Old Pundu, the Cod, it was his duty to drag and create the river known as the Darling River today.
So Cod came out with Mudlark, his little mate, and they set off from the north and they created the big river. Flows right down, water flows right throughout our country, right into the sea now.
And of course, this country was also created, the first two tribes put in our country were Eaglehawk and Crow. And from these two tribes came many tribal people, many tribes, and we call them sub-groups today. So my people, the Ngiyaampaa people and the Barkandji further down are all sub-groups of Eaglehawk and Crow.
So what I’m telling you-the stories that were handed down to me all come from within this country.
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!

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.
Je recopie les questions:
