November 2014: Rosetta Mission Comet Probe

November 12, 2014 15:53

Back in 2010 I had the privilege of writing the film score for a movie about the Rosetta mission to land a probe on a comet. To make this film, Lego contributed what looks like a dump-truck worth of Legos to simulate the comet, build a model of the lander, etc. My favorite moment in the film is when an astrophysicist lady — someone whom you wouldn't normally associate with displays of passion — has a Lego model of the lander in hand, and explains/shows how it will land on a Lego comet landscape, but it is so clear that in her imagination she is landing the real lander on the real comet.

You can see the movie here.
