Astronaut ( The Toughest Job in the Universe ) is a new ten-part series in which 12 men and women from all over the Middle East go through the most extreme and demanding selection process reserved for real-life astronaut candidates. 

The 12 who come from different backgrounds as pilots, scientists, and explorers share the same passion for space exploration. They passed through an evaluation process based on criteria set by the space agencies, not to mention their experiences and talents reflective of their dedication to achieving their goals.
