The series dramatises an alternate history which shows a world where the global space race hasn’t ended.
American politics is intertwined with NASA’s efforts, pushing them for results and milestones. Female astronauts and mission commanders get involved in the program much sooner. The drama plays out on both Earth and space, with various issues which were not factored in, that come to light.
Excellent performances by the cast and no expense spared in the production values make this a realistic and riveting watch.
