Excellent portrayal of mothers’ struggles to balance diverse roles and still be good enough.

A deep dive into what it means to be an astronaut leaving family behind on a long mission. Perhaps would have been better if the feelings of the male astronauts were expanded beyond the superficial treatment they were given.
