Yeah, that really came out of nowhere. NASA having essentially 4 missions in a row go to shit?

I'm saying the Russians will help out and there will be another time jump at the end of the season

I've been watching and enjoying this, only a few more episodes left but if Apple wants their streaming service to succeed it needs to be more readily available. I have two smart TVs and Apple TV+ isn't available on either of them. I have to watch on my laptop in my living room which I don't care about, but I feel like the average person isn't gonna want to do that.

Season 2 has grown on me a lot. Even though they aren't in space too much, theyre doing a good job with these earth-based storylines I think. It does seem like their target audience is older people though...

Finished S2 last week. Great show and pretty good about being scientifically accurate too. It does make me said that the Apollo program was canceled in 1973 though .

I have started watching this and so far I am enjoying it. The pacing of the first four episodes has been all over the place.

I do like that they aren't creating a bunch of back home sexual drama, it all seems realistic and grounded.

I watched Seasons 1 & 2 over the past couple weeks. I enjoyed it. I'm nostalgic for the glory days of the Space Program when I wasn't even alive. Can't explain it.

It's interesting to see some of the real history mixed in out-of-sequence.

- Reagan elected in 1976 instead of 1980
- There really was an Apollo-Soyuz mission with a handshake in space and an androgynous docking system
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo%E2%80%93Soyuz
- The Soviets really did shoot down Korean Air 007
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Air_Lines_Flight_007
- There really was a Buran shuttle program
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buran_%28spacecraft%29

The Soviets / Russia are definitely the champs at shooting down commercial flights.

Also new plot lines for real people like Deke Slayton and Sally Ride.

I guess that despite their many other disasters, they caught the O-Ring problem before Challenger blew up in this continuity.

I also guess none of what I previously posted is going to be new info for space nerds or NASA employees like Wraith.

Yo, what's the latest delayed expectation for Artemis crewed moon landing?

Hard to believe. They should at least try to keep this borderline believable.

Artemis I just rolled out for wet dress rehearsal. Pictures all over the place on that. I haven't worked SLS since 2018, but I put 8 years of work into it so pretty pumped about it. In terms of next person walking on the moon? That would be Artemis III. 2024 was never going to happen, I think the official expected launch date is now 2025 but even that is optimistic.

Aging and frustrated white man becomes less guarded with his racist statements? Never seen that before.

+1 for Harambe, though. Writers probably had a good chuckle about that.

I was disappointed to find out it's only one episode per week. I was ready to binge it this weekend and only got two episodes.

At this point she's in her 60s. Is there not some kind of psychological test they'd give this kid that would uncover his psychological obsessions? Also, he's getting jealous of Ed? Her ex husband? Who she was married to before he was even born? Weird that they would go for that for this season, but okay. Is the kid gonna try and kill Ed on Mars or something dumb like that?

The Astronaut Corps is much larger and his parents were famous, so I can see it falling through the cracks. I mean they already said he was an alcoholic at some point and he still got to go to the moon.

The trailer shows Ed swinging at him.

That's true. Not really a complaint, but a comment. Also, Danny is a confirmed nut.
