'For All Mankind' Star Chris Agos on the Difficulty of Acting in a 60-Pound Space Suit (Exclusive)

By

If the United States was not the first country to send a man to the moon, would that singular historical event launch the trajectory of the space race and society onto a different path? The new Apple TV+ series For All Mankind explores the “what if” scenario of the Soviet Union beating the U.S. to the moon and the continued exploration in the space program, which people living in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s in real-life were promised.  

“Ultimately, [the show’s writers] asked the question: ‘What would not only the U.S., but the world and humanity look like if we had never really stopped, if we didn’t pull back [from the space race] and we just kept going,'” Chris Agos, who plays Buzz Aldrin explained to Distractify in an exclusive interview.
