This series of teaching films was written by the National Space Academy for ESA to help with student understanding of several topics in fundamental physics as well as to explain the role of ESA’s ATV programme of cargo flights to the ISS.

The videos feature the 5 scientists and visionaries after whom the Automated Transfer Vehicles (ATV) were named: Jules Verne, Johannes Kepler, Edoardo Amaldi, Albert Einstein, and Georges Lemaître. With their brilliant intuition, these historical figures proposed concepts that revolutionised science and our understanding of the world.
