About Live from Space

Being an astronaut is the most dangerous and extraordinary job there is. But what's life really like in microgravity? This March, Channel 4 went boldly to space with groundbreaking season, Live from Space. We met the astronauts on-board the International Space Station, visited NASA and saw spectacular shots of the Earth from Space.
