Space travel is inching ever closer, with a luxury space hotel set to launch next year and would-be citizen astronauts increasingly keen to pull on their space boots and explore the final frontier.
But given that this is still months away, we all need to find other ways in which to indulge our passion - and, thankfully, Netflix has decided to lend a helping hand with new series Away, which tells the tale of Commander Emma Green who leaves her family behind to lead an international crew of astronauts on a three-year mission to Mars.
It stars two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank, as well as Josh Charles (who you may recognise from The Good Wife) and Vivian Wu (The Last Emperor and The Pillow book), created by the team behind Parenthood.
The first season will be available on Netflix from September 4th, so we don’t have too long to wait now, with just a week or so left of August (somehow).
But if you can’t wait that long and need your fix of interstellar action right now, there are all sorts of other shows you can catch in the meantime to help keep you going.
There are two seasons of Lost in Space to catch if you haven’t already done so, or what about Another Life, about astronaut Niko Breckenridge and her crew who go on a high-risk mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact.
And then, of course, there’s Space Force, a Steve Carell and Greg Daniels creation centred on a group of people establishing the United States Space Force, with the aim being to get boots on the moon by 2024.
