Dr Jackie Bell is a theoretical particle physicist, athlete, and a certified space junkie so It’s easy to see why she was selected as one of twelve candidates for the BBC2 program, “Astronaut: Do You Have What It Takes.” The program put the candidates through a series of challenges to see if they have the mental, physical and emotional capacity to become an astronaut. The former chief of the International Space Station Chris Hadfield was the host. Jackie’s journey, from an 8-year old in Liverpool, watching Red Dwarf with her Dad, to being one of twelve candidates for astronaut training is a remarkable, funny and inspiring story.
