Summary:The handpicked team of cadets board the space shuttle and countdown to lift-off. Will they rumble the practical joke before lift-off?
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.
