Wonder what Will Smith (Bright) and Darren Aronofsky (Mother, The Fountain) have been up to this past year outside the Hollywood's feature film dream factory?

Check out this fresh peek at Nat Geo's new wonder-filled documentary, One Strange Rock. Produced by Nutopia and Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures, this illuminating and entrancing 10-episode series utilizes the perspective of three NASA astronauts and was filmed across 45 countries, 6 continents, and up into outer space. It reveals our Big Blue Marble to be one of the most stunning, self-contained, and unique spots in the universe.


Hosted by Smith, One Strange Rock is a captivating hybrid of natural history and science that propels viewers to some spectacular destinations on Earth in a stylized presentation accompanied by the comments and impressions of a trio of real female astronauts: Mae Jemison, Nicole Stott, and Peggy Whitson.

SYFY WIRE sat down with these star voyagers to hear how the show frames their personal stories, connections from their space flights to their home planet, the fragility and strength of spaceship Earth, and what were some of their favorite parts of the docuseries.

National Geographic Channel's One Strange Rock airs on Mar. 26 at 10 p.m. ET.
