Summary:The latest instalment live from the STAR space centre where,after weeks of intensive training,the cadets find out which of them have been selected for their special mission... to be flown 100 kilometres up into Near Space. Or will they?
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.
