Co-created by Steve Carell and The Office developer Greg Daniels, the spoof series stars Carell himself alongside Lisa Kudrow, John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Jimmy O. Yang, and Diana Silvers.

To do so, he uproots his life and family and moves to a Colorado base where he works alongside a group of scientists and “Spacemen” to Americans back onto the Moon under the direction of the White House.
Space Force will arrive on Netflix May 29.
Elsewhere in entertainment, NASA has opened up its database of videos, e-books and podcasts for those staying at home.
