Report on the Results:  An interesting artistic event related to exploration of Space was organised in 1st Nicolaus Copernicus College in Zywiec, in Southern Poland. The group of astronomy enthusiasts from the college is one of the most active in Poland. It was the best place for the pre-premiere of the documentary film about the STS-130 Endeavour mission to ISS in February 2010. Seven windows of the Cupola installed by the crew of Endeavour on the Tranquility module changed our view on Earth and Universe. The music of Chopin brought to Space by commander George Zamka was the best medium to express emotions and feelings of astronauts during this spectacular mission. The aim of the film was to explain, that exploration of Space is not only a driving force for technology progress, but first of all supports our spiritual development. The opening of the Cupola windows on the Earth is a symbolic moment of art and technology reunion. After the film, students shared their reflections about the future of manned Space flights. The world premiere of the film is scheduled in the April 12, 2011.
