Over four parts, director James Bluemel and his Keo Films team will take the same character-centred approach to tell the human story of space exploration.

Pioneering astronauts, visionary scientists and engineers, daring space tourists, maverick billionaires and astro-theorists will all give testimony in the series, which aims to connect the past with the present as humankind starts a new Space Race.
