Apple celebrates Apollo 11 anniversary with a new peek at For All Mankind


As you’ve probably gathered from the Internet today, this is the 50th anniversary of the historic launch of Apollo 11. Tech giant Apple, which has recently gotten into TV production, has released a new, short sneak-peek video for its space-themed For All Mankind series to tie in with the milestone.

This marks the second trailer for the show, but this one has a different focus than the one we saw last month. In it, the showrunners discuss the motivation behind making For All Mankind, the themes it will cover, and more in a series of interviews interspersed with footage. Some of the clips are new, but many are recycled from the previous trailer.

However, those interviewed include (among others) co-creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore—best known as the creator and showrunner of 2004’s Battlestar GalacticaOutlander on Starz, and a longtime writer and producer for Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine—Maril Davis (who wrote many of Battlestar Galactica‘s best episodes), and Michael Okuda, who famously headed up art direction for the 24th-century-era Star Trek series. Those are obviously sci-fi fan favorites, so it’s good to hear them talking about how space exploration can inspire.
