Defying Gravity is a dramatic science-fiction television series created by James D. Parriott and set in the year 2052. In this series, eight astronauts from five different countries are chosen to participate in a six-year experiment. The experiment requires the astronauts to live aboard a spacecraft, Antares, for the entire six years, and to collect scientific data from around the solar system. This mission is much different from other space missions because the entire world is watching the mission unfold. Astronauts aboard Antares include Dr. Evram Mintz (Eyal Podell), a psychiatrist from Canada, Jen Crane (Christina Cox), a biologist from Canada, Maddux Donner (Ron Livingston), the ship's chief engineer from the United States Midwest, Nadia Schilling (Florentine Lahme), a pilot from Germany, Paula Morales (Paula Garces), the payload specialist originally from Texas, Steve Wassenfelder (Dylan Taylor), theoretical physicist also from the United States, Ted Shaw (Malik Yoba), US born commander of Antares, and Zoe Barnes (Laura Harris), a geologist from Canada. Every minute of the astronauts lives is being delivered to televisions all over the world. In addition to the public, mission control and many others are also watching every move, emotion and confrontation that occurs between crew members. Shortly after the mission begins, the crew begins to question their official mission objectives. In fact, it is soon revealed that an unknown person may be manipulating crew missions. At first, the crew thinks the unusual things that are happening are coincidental, but soon they begin to realize that their mission may have a bigger purpose than their actual mission objectives.
