What is Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?
The show will see 12 wannabe astronauts taking part in a gruelling and physically and mentally taxing series of training tasks in the hope of maybe walking on the moon.
Watching over the men and women will be none other than Chris Hadfield, a former commander of the International Space Station.
He became a global sensation for his guitar-playing antics in zero gravity.
At the end of the series, Hadfield will recommend the best one to space agencies recruiting for potential astronauts to go into space.
Who is Chris Hadfield?
Chris Hadfield is a retired Canadian astronaut who was the first Canadian to walk in space.
He was born on August 29, 1959, in Ontario and was a test pilot for the Canadian Armed Forces before joining the Canadian Space Agency in 1992.
Hadfield made multiple trips to the ISS and became hugely popular thanks to his habit of taking photos of the Earth from space and posting them on Twitter.
His mission ended in May 2013 when he returned to Earth for the last time.
