In Season 2, we leap in time of almost ten years, and technology and lunar exploration leap forward. We are now in 1983 under the presidency of Ronald Reagan and a period when tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their peak. The two confront each other in an attempt to gain control of resource-rich sites on the moon. A collaboration between NASA and the military thus emerged, which some saw as an opportunity while others are still fiercely opposed to this association.
