Astronaut (autism-friendly)

The exploration of space is the greatest endeavour that humankind has ever undertaken ... 

What does it take to become an astronaut? Explore the amazing worlds of inner and outer space, from microscopic regions of the human body to the the International Space Station in this exploration of shuttle-era human space flight.

Discover the perils that lurk in space as ‘Chad’, the show's test astronaut, is subjected to everything that space has to throw at him!

This show is popular with children of all ages and an ideal choice for mixed-age groups.
