Apple TV + has decided to celebrate in style the arrival of the third season of its acclaimed ‘For all humanity’, its dramatic overtone ucronía that considers what would have happened if the space race between Russia and the United States that we know would have developed very differently. For those who did not get to see the start of the series, the platform has relaunched the first season for free and without the need for a subscription Limited Time.
In that first year, the series wondered what would have happened if the Russians had gotten to the Moon earlier, putting Alexei Leonov on the satellite (which would have happened, indeed, if the project hadn’t been cancelled). But that triumph is like the flapping of a butterfly’s wings with unforeseen consequences for the future of the space race. From there, everything changes.
NASA tries to overtake its rivals and imitates some Soviet moves to promote the career of women and ethnic minorities in its space program, as opposed to what happened in reality. NASA would have been in second position, which would have prevented it from resting on its laurelsand the space race would have become an issue of national (and security) importance.
The second season takes place in 1983, during Reagan’s second term, and the third already delves into total science fiction. ‘For all mankind’ is co-created by Ronald D. Moore, who has extensive experience in the genre, and in particular in the Star Trek franchise: he has participated in series such as ‘The New Generation’, ‘Deep Space Nine’, Voyager’ , ‘Battlestar Galactica’ or ‘Outlander’
