Summary:The team of space cadets are being monitored as they journey to what they think is Near Space. As they conduct ever more strange experiments,will the crew cotton on to the joke and realise they are on the biggest ride of their lives?
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.
