‘Among the Stars’ director Ben Turner captures raw emotion in new Disney Plus space documentary (Q&A)

Disney Plus’s new high-flying space docuseries “Among the Stars” chronicles NASA’s two-year quest to replace the failing cooling pumps on a pricey piece of cosmic ray detecting equipment installed on the International Space Station. 

During a series of four hazardous spacewalks in 2019 and 2020, astronauts Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency and Drew Morgan of NASA completed the critical repairs to the $2 billion Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) that’s been collecting antimatter particles since 2011.
