Paris, 13 April 2021. – Looking for another hero: Space Hero, “the World‘s first ever global casting show” for a trip to the International Space Station (ISS), signed an agreement with NASA for a feasibility study of a such a mission, Space Hero said.
The agreement was signed at a significant date in human history, Space Hero said, “as April 12, 2021 marks the 60th anniversary of the first human in space, Yuri Gagarin”.
“Since then, more than 500 professionals have risked their lives to create a path into space that is now reliable for humanity to explore”, the reality show producer said.
The Space Hero mission is targeted for 2023 and will be provided by Axiom Space. It may include “a 24/7 immersive and interactive livestream”, Space Hero says.
Space Hero is planning a $55 million, ten-day trip to the ISS. The competition for this once-in-a lifetime journey will begin at the end of 2021. The call will be open to anyone who is over 18 and has a fluency in English. The flight is targeted for 2023. Space Hero is planning 15 seasons over the next 30 years, eventually flying beyond the ISS to the Moon and Mars.
