Reality Show Will Send Winner Into Space

A new reality show promises to be like nothing else on Earth

"Space Hero" will chronicle the selection of a person to launch to the International Space Station then follow them on their mission.

According to Deadline, a U.S. production company has secured a seat on a 2023 rocket launch to the International Space Station.

According to Deadline:

"The series will launch a global search for everyday people from any background who share a deep love for space exploration. They will be vying for the biggest prize ever awarded on TV."

The winner will fly aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket inside a Crew Dragon capsule to reach the I-S-S.

The article continues:

"The selected group of contestants will undergo extensive training and face challenges testing their physical, mental and emotional strength, qualities that are essential for an astronaut in space. I hear the idea is for the culmination of the competition to be in a an episode broadcast live around the world where viewers from different countries can vote for the contestant they want to see going to space. The show will then chronicle the winner’s takeoff; their stay at the ISS for 10 days alongside professional astronauts traveling at 17,000 mph, orbiting the Earth 16 times a day; and end with their return to Earth. The Space Hero company is currently in discussions with NASA for a potential partnership on STEM initiatives onboard the ISS."

Producers have not said when they will start casting for the show that will be distributed worldwide.
