PBS Space Time explores the outer reaches of space, the craziness of astrophysics, the possibilities of sci-fi, and anything else you can think of beyond Planet Earth. Host Matt O'Dowd breaks down both the basic and incredibly complex sides of space and time.

To travel the stars without faster than light travel we’re going to need a generation ship.
Today we are jumping into a black hole. Again.
The Moon: humanity’s first destination beyond our atmosphere.
