This is a hybrid of scripted drama and documentary.  It will get you thinking and wanting the next episode.  I will warn you...you may have the urge to binge watch this if you are a nerd like me!
In 2033, the first human mission to Mars enters the planet's atmosphere.   The crew has to learn how to deal with the harsh terrain, the tragedies they incur while there, the psychological pressures of life on Mars and everything else. The crew begins to question the mission in its entirety and wonders will they ever be able to colonize Mars?
