ASTRONAUTS: DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES? | BBC2 SUN­DAY

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

NO. NO WE HAVEN’T. We def­i­nitely do not have what it takes to be an as­tro­naut – but we’ve still found this to be fan­tas­tic telly. It’s fas­ci­nat­ing to see the sort of tests that po­ten­tial astronauts are put through – not just the ob­vi­ous ones about fit­ness or their abil­ity to pi­lot an air­craft, but also the ones about tem­per­a­ment and suit­abil­ity for the long, lonely, dis­ori­ent­ing job of work­ing in space. This week, the re­main­ing can­di­dates will be tested on their at­ten­tion to de­tail, us­ing a sim­u­la­tor to at­tempt the del­i­cate ma­noeu­vre of dock­ing a space­craft at the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion.
