The Mars space history in ‘For All Mankind’ season 3 on Apple TV+


Were it not for a difference in our timelines, the title of the season 3 opening episode of “For All Mankind” might have been a spoiler.

In real life — as opposed to the alternate space history presented in the critically-acclaimed Apple TV Plus series (opens in new tab) — “Polaris” is the name of a three-mission, privately-funded program intended to advance the day when humans will launch to Mars. On the show, as revealed in the first few minutes of the first episode, “Polaris” is the name of a space tourism company and its rotating space hotel in Earth orbit.
