Who’s excited for the episode of BBC2’s awesome new series?

Here’s what we’ve got to look forward to:

The remaining astronaut candidates are put through more demanding tests by astronaut Chris Hadfield and his expert panel. Some are pushed to their limits in a simulated emergency splashdown, where they have toescape from an underwater capsule. At the UK’s biggest space-tech firm, they must successfully operate a groundbreaking robot, the Mars Rover. A social event gives Chris and the panel a further chance to scrutinise their character. Not all candidates make it through this phase of selection.
