Summary:Join Johnny Vaughan at the STAR space centre to find out how the space tourists have fared on their mission. Friends and family prepare to meet the crew as they land and emerge from the shuttle after several days in Near Space. Will the cadets rumble the galactic-sized ruse before "re-entry"?
Description:Channel 4 visits the final frontier by blasting a lucky team of starry-eyed applicants into space.
Undergoing intensive training in Russia before being flown 100 kilometres up into near space,the group will spend up to five days orbiting the Earth,conducting experiments and quite literally watching the world go by - or will they?
Unbeknown to them,they won't be in space at all... Or even Russia. They'll actually be in a disused military base at a secret location somewhere in the UK,possibly the most audacious,complicated and ambitious practical joke in television history.
