America First, Mars Next

Jordan visits the front lines of America's new space race and is sad to see how far we have fallen. As a kid, he idolized NASA in all its glory, from Apollo to shuttle launches at Cape Canaveral to freeze-dried ice cream. Today's program is defined by clunky bureaucracy, private billionaire spaceports, and begging Russia for a ride into orbit. However, there is hope: an IG-friendly teen in Florida and a grumpy old astronaut in Houston are taking a new moonshot, and Jordan's biggest ally might be none other than the President of The United States.
