All three missions are closing in on Mars now and only days remain before at least one spacecraft makes history and lands on the red planet. The distinct teams start to get desperate and play recklessly as they vie for the number one spot. Here’s what happened in episode four of For All Mankind:

  • Helios is in first place with Phoenix looking set to win the all-important space race. Ed and Dev celebrate a little too early though as Danielle and NASA have other plans.
  • NASA’s Sojourner-1 unveils its gigantic solar sails which accelerate their ship and put them in first place. They’ll be so fast that they beat Helios by over a week at their current trajectory.
  • Dev wants to fight back with reckless abandon but is talked down.
  • On earth, protests start to surge. People are enraged by the expensive space race and the new Helium-3, which is destroying the fossil fuel companies. President Ellen Wilson is losing her hold over the political climate and decides to visit NASA HQ to appease the voters.
  • Jimmy Stevens attends the protests and meets some protestors who believe in wild conspiracy theories.
  • A Soviet astronaut warns Kelly Baldwin that the Russians are about to do something dangerous and they need help. The Russians fire up their nuclear engines and aim for the first spot. Their engines fail quickly though and the ship goes into meltdown.
  • Ed wants to change course and plot a rescue mission for the Russians, this would end their Mars mission completely and they would have to head home with the Soviets.
  • Dev puts it to a vote and they decide not to help the Russians. Dev informs Margo of this decision. Ellen Wilson seizes this opportunity and NASA decide to help instead.
  • On their final approach, NASA notice the Russian’s spacecraft is unsafe and try to warn the crew. There is a delay though and while they are transferring the astronauts, the Russian’s ship malfunctions and collides with the Sojourner-1. At least three astronauts are killed by the impact.
