About the show

This drama about a woman’s solo journey to Mars explores the depths of mankind’s last true frontiers: outer space and a grieving heart. More…

In 'Spaceman,' the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail. Radiation exposure, long term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays, and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges astronaut Molly Jennis must face as the first to Mars. But she soon finds nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone. Time spent mulling over the decisions she has made and what might be waiting for her when she finally reaches her destination.

And even if her blunt, muscular performance isn’t to everyone’s taste, I applaud actress Erin Treadway for ski...
