Jews in Space tells the epic story of the Jewish relationship to outer space.
From as early as Genesis, Jews have pondered the heavens that surround our planet. Jews explored astrology and other sciences, coined the term “science fiction,” and were shot into orbit as part of the space race, which also utilized the work of Jewish scientists and engineers to reach the breathtaking milestones that transfixed our cultural imagination.
Jews appear in depictions of space, space travel, and all manner of science fiction, starring in groundbreaking television shows such as Star Trek, and creating beloved movies like Spaceballs by Mel Brooks.
