Did you grow up wanting to be an astronaut? Well now here is your chance to become one.

A new reality show produced by the Discovery Channel called 'Who Wants to Be an Astronaut?' will send the winner of a competition to space in 2022.

The winner is expected to win a ticket to the International Space Station (ISS) on a commercial Axiom Space mission in 2022.

The show will be an eight-part series documenting the journey of roughly 10-12 contestants, who will be expected to undertake a variety of "extreme challenges" based on real astronaut training. The purpose is to test their capabilities and gain the qualifications required for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the space station.

"Extreme challenges"? I wonder if some of that will include G-force training like this from the movie Spies Like Us.

Producer of the show Jay Peterson indeed says winning the contest will not be easy.

"These people need to become astronauts the way every astronaut has become in the past."

"This isn't a rocket ride up into orbit and then coming down. [Civilians] are going to go up and go to the International Space Station and spend time there, do a mission, and then come home," Peterson added.

To be eligible for the show, you need to be a US citizen or a legal resident of the US and 18 years of age or older.

If you'd like to be considered for the competition, all you have to do is fill out this questionnaire.

So, San Angelo, do you have what it takes to be an astronaut? Tell us on Facebook or chat with us on our station app.
