Americans have been fascinated by the cosmos for decades and rely on NASA to explore celestial bodies seen in the night sky to get a better idea of what is out there. In this series, former NASA employee Emily Calandrelli visits some of the agency's facilities, private companies and universities to speak with people knowledgeable about the topic to help "show off the coolest aspects of the space industry," to use her words. Technology, a potential manned mission to Mars and planetary tourism are some themes.
