Apple's Latest Original Series Shows What Could Have Happened if the USSR Hit the Moon First

The Space Race pretty much ended when NASA landed a man on the moon, and since then Humanity has done fuck all in terms of manned exploration of the Solar System. But what if the Soviets got there first? Apple's latest original show takes a look.

'For All Mankind' comes form producer Ron Moore, one of the men behind Battlestar Galactica and various iterations of Star Trek. From the looks of things the fact the first man on the moon was a Cosmonaut sends the US into overdrive, pushing to send people all across the solar system. Mars and Saturn were mentioned, as was subterranean water on the moon.

I'll admit, the last lot of announcements were pretty rubbish, but this is one TV show I'd like to check out.
