I saw on Access Hollywood last night where this new game show is in the works for next year: Contestants will be selected to be trained by the Russian Military to prepare for space travel aboard the "MIR" space shuttle. If they successfully make it past that training, they actually go with a Russian Space crew for a 10-day Space flight orbiting the earth to enter a satellite station (I think). I can't recall what kind of cash prize is involved (if any).
Anyway, I couldn't believe that the producers are actually going through with this! They're serious. Doesn't this seem a little too dangerous for the average person?
I sure da hell wouldn't do anything so far-fetched.
