Once upon a time, America’s space program had some pretty lofty and ambitious goals — shooting for the stars, as it were. But economic turmoil in the ’70s and ’80s caused the government to scale back its plans for NASA’s space exploration, something that’s saddened science fans for many years. But what if, in an alternate universe, America’s space program got the “all systems go” signal all the way from the moon landing until now? What would the program look like? Where would we have gone? That’s the intriguing premise behind a new Apple TV+ show, For All Mankind. One of the show’s creators is Ronald D. Moore, who’s worked on Battlestar Galactica and a number of the Star Trek series, and he talked to us about how the idea for the show came together. (Click on the media bar below to hear Ronald D.
