For All Mankind Title Sequence

The course of human history can be altered in a single moment—one butterfly-flap of the wings that shifts our shared trajectory forever. In our case, the butterfly just happens to be a Soviet cosmonaut landing on the Moon. Since the dawn of time, we’ve been looking to the stars to understand our place on Earth. It’s a common thread that binds us and inspires us to invent, explore, discover. Here, these common threads collide as we represent the course of human history being changed in that single event—the Soviet Union beating America to the Moon—and the world we make together in its wake.
