A Neo-Noir Short Made from Actual Photos of Rosetta’s Historic Comet Landing
In 2016 an exciting mission came to its planned end. The Rosetta spacecraft made its final maneuver—a controlled hard-landing on the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67p).
Before that, Rosetta accompanied the Comet for more than 2 years. It researched valuable scientific data, brought a lander to the comet’s surface and took a vast number of images.
In 2017, the ESA released over 400,000 images from Rosetta’s historic mission. Based on this incredible source material, motion designer Christian Stangl and composer Wolfgang Stangl, worked together to create this neo-noir short film.
