Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

"11,2 km/s" is the official theme music for ESA's Estrack ground station network. It was composed by Gautier Acher,
a 17-year-old student living in Paris, France, and entered in the 2015 Tracking Station Music Contest, which celebrated
the 40th anniversary of the Estrack network. Gautier's top-ranked entry was selected from a field 117 submissions received from over a dozen countries. Gautier wrote: "This track is a triptych that shows space is vast, but is full of interesting things, such as humankind,
stars, comets, planets... It describes great achievements, in the past, and in the future." While only three entrants could win prizes in the music contest, and only 10 could be at the top, the ESA judging panel praised all 117 submissions. Judges commented that, "We heard some marvellous stuff created by people who are passionate, motivated and imaginative in their pursuit of music
that reflects the central themes of exploration into our Universe, technological excellence and the dreams of humanity’s journeys into space." In 1975, the ground station at Villafranca in Spain became the kernel of the ESA Tracking network, which now comprises 10 stations in seven countries
and in 2015 celebrates four decades of providing links to space for ESA's science, Earth, observatory and exploration missions. Since inception, Estrack has expanded worldwide and today employs cutting-edge technology to link mission controllers with spacecraft orbiting Earth,
voyaging deep in our Solar System and anywhere in between (more information in our Estrack web site). Congratulations the top 10 entrants as well as the top three prize winners. Special congratulations to Gautier Acher Released: 24/09/2015 Length: 00:03:11

When it comes to the next generation of space exploration, a number of key technologies are being investigated. In addition to spacecraft and launchers that will be able to send astronauts farther into the Solar System, NASA and other space agencies are also looking into new means of propulsion. Compared to conventional rockets, the goal is to create systems that offer reliable thrust while ensuring fuel-efficiency.
