    Just getting this off my chest. Streaming services can go kiss my ass. I'm not buying yet another service just to watch one show that I'd like to watch.

    Now, that's out of the way....

    This is a intriguing premise, but it better not be some soapy drama on Earth. I hope we get to spend time in space with these astronauts.

    (Also, I do NOT want aliens or any overly sci-fi stuff in this show. They're pushing plausibility enough with the Soviets being the first on the Moon)

    Neat!

    ...one small jump for Ivan, and then the space race that we deserve as a people, as a nation!

    And in the meantime,

    Who? Who who who?"

    Apollo era fictional Female Astronaut team ("Nixon's women" according to the episode guide), so what's not to like!

    So who will be the First American Woman in Space and the First Woman on the Moon?

    Looking at the main characters in the cast list, the main contenders seem to be Tracy Stevens, wife of astronaut Gordo Stevens (they look likely to be based on the real life Gordon and Trudi Cooper) and Ellen Waverly.

    Well so far when the Soviets landed on the Moon they didn't show the USSR Space Lander or Space Rocket,

    I admit: I am intrigued.

    Especially if Ron Moore is running it.

    It seems that the success of The Man in the High Castle has made alternate history more bankable, at least for streaming TV.

    Actually, it's not a US History production like "Ancient Aliens" or "finding Hitler" and that Fake doku about Maya pyramid on Robinson Crusoe Island
