Planned Reality TV Show Wants To Launch the Winner To the International Space Station

If you’ve ever had dreams of going into space, you just might want to apply for the upcoming reality show Space Hero. The grand prize? A seat on a 2023 mission to the International Space Station. According to a statement from Space Hero Inc., the US-based production company developing the unscripted show, the premise is to “search the entire globe for an everyday citizen with a deep love for space exploration.” Budding astronauts will be put through rigorous testing and procedures, challenging their physical, mental and emotional strength. The winning candidate will receive full training from Axiom Space Inc. — a full-service human spaceflight mission provider and manufacturer of the world’s first privately funded commercial space station. The winner will then off to spend 10 days alongside professional astronauts traveling at 17,000 mph while orbiting the earth 16 times a day. Chairman of Space Hero Inc. Marty Pompadur said: “Space Hero is about opening space up to everyone – not only to astronauts and billionaires.”
