Astronaut Chris Hadfield, former Nasa medical researcher Dr Kevin Fong and psychologist Dr Iya Whiteley put 12 exceptional candidates through a series of gruelling physical and psychological tests to find out who has what it takes to be an astronaut. Using the demanding criteria of space agencies, they must hover a helicopter, take their own blood and be tested for claustrophobia, physical fitness and mental agility. Those who fail to make the grade can be asked to leave at any time.
