The interesting and heartfelt docuseries, which was a real-time production that followed the Inspiration4 project from the time it unfolded until its successful end, underscores the idea that the U.S. is going through a momentous period in space aviation. Referred to as "Space Race 2.0," it highlights the attempts of private citizens to launch their own space journeys, and the efforts of Space X and other private companies to develop the necessary technology and programs designed to support space tourism. But while Countdown: Inspiration4 Mission To Space is focused on the process by which it all came together, at the heart of it are the personal stories of the astronauts, their families, and those who play a role in the success of the launch and preserving the safety of its crew. It's a natural for space fans, but anyone can appreciate the positive and emotional impact Inspiration4 had on the people who were involved in it.
