Synopsis

On November 16, 2016, the French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, 38, flew for a 6-month adventure
in the International Space Station: this is THE PROXIMA MISSION. To prepare this mission
and to face the hostile environment of space, Thomas Pesquet trained for 7 years in the mythical
places of the space conquest. From Houston to Baikonur, and until the final days before his take-off,
directors Jürgen Hansen and Pierre-Emmanuel Le Goff followed this physical and mental preparation as
closely as possible. In the course of the countdown, they invite the audience to an amazing immersive
experience, where they will share, during intense training sessions, the feelings, questions and hopes
of the young astronaut.
