Dont know if anyone saw it but last year the BBc i think managed to convince a few daft brits that they were in space when infact they were in a simulator! was torture! even convinced them there was gravity as they were so close to earth! hahahaha was so funny! was an amazing projector though! wouldnt mind a ride myself!

Hi Rob

That was Channel 4's Space Cadets

The BBC wouldn't dream of misleading anybody - well, not unless they were making a few quid out of phone-calls in the process :?

I didn't see it, but I heard about the excuse for gravity. I can only assume those people needed their mothers to dress them in the morning. :roll:

haha yeah the BBC would have only done it if yohad to phone vote on who got pushed out the door! sure all the money would have gone to charity too ;)

I think there were psychological tests done to find the people who were most "gullable" people who are eaily lead etc! complete joke, wonder where they are now! on the none joking part though they have had the experience. Although not fake they generally mist have had the same feelings as they thought they were looking down at earth, entering space etc. So in some ways they are fairly lucky

Derren Brown could probably get the same effect with a diving mask and a globe!

Wasn't there a spaceflight simulator in Tooley Street, near Tower Bridge, a few years back? I can't find any trace of it now.
