  • How close it gets to real Mars space travel — Away' on Netflix

The three-year journey of this crew, led by Hilary Swank's clenched jaw as a commander doubtful of her decision-making, is intercut with doses of earthbound tension between her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) - and all those nervously watching this worldwide mission from afar. But her husband, Matt (Josh Charles, The Good Wife), is a NASA engineer who passionately argues that his wife is more than ready to fulfill her duty. But this moreish Mars confection keeps you hanging on until touchdown - if only to see if the crew will be vapourised in one of the lethal emergencies they face most episodes. The stakes have never been higher.

"As writers of this show we all more deeply understand now what it is to be isolated", said showrunner Jessica Goldberg. Why did you want to tackle a space drama? When they're interviewed by Darlene Cole (Gabrielle Rose), the director of the mission, the two of them give conflicting stories about their role in quelling the chemical leak and where they thought Emma failed in her job. The first being that it's such a divisive time. She further added that It felt like such a positive thing to work at the existing time. And then the second reason was it was like the ultimate working mom's show. She is married to Matt Logan, with whom she has a 15-year-old daughter, Lex.

Before Hilary Swank caught the acting bug, she had her sights set on a different type of stardom. Was was the process like to cast her? Was she always someone that you had in mind? Those movies made me want to stretch the way I told stories. Emma has some personnel issues onboard (prickly personalities, a colleague who may think of her as more than a friend, and a rookie astronaut on her team), but what's not a factor is that she's a woman in charge. When, during their pre-launch press conference, a reporter brings up the idea that surviving the mission is 50-50, Emma cringes but answers as honestly as she can. We knew that. We just got so lucky because when we sent her the script, she said that she had had a dream of being an astronaut when she was a kid.

The series shifts back-and-forth between what's going on in space and back home with her family.

Hilary is surrounded by an incredible ensemble cast. As I've learned, you have to have an incredibly strong core so any pilates you do up until then is very useful for the astronauts. He is a world-renowned botanist and carries with him the hope of growing life on Mars. Ray Panthaki we also saw on a tape. And the press conference contained so much awkward exposition, we wondered why there wasn't just a voice over at the beginning to explain it all. We're a broken world and most astronauts say they've had an experience from space where they said they've looked at earth and suddenly the lines disappear and the divisions between countries disappear and suddenly it's just one blue earth they're looking at.

With them playing astronauts, did they have to go through a physical training process?

Basically, a week before we started, all the actors came up to learn to work on the wires because that's how you get the sense that there's zero gravity. It's incredibly hard. You have to have a very strong core. There are a number of space-mission films that this could be compared to, like Gravity. Is it possible? So, a lot of the times we are actually shooting from the chest up and the actors sort of leaned forward to give the idea that they're floating or there are different teeter boards to give that illusion because actually it's very hard to project that kind of emotion while hanging on a wire.

The show has a certain cosy appeal when you grasp its overall ambition level - somewhere lowered towards The Martian rather than gunning for Interstellar, and perhaps more Star Trek: Voyager than either. "It's the whole idea of space exploration, something bigger than all of us, looking back down at Earth and how lovely it is and how we're all connected". We got to go to JPL [Jet Propulsion Laboratory] past year when a rover landed on Mars.
