"Space Race" is the third episode of Thunderbirds Are Go!, and was broadcast on Saturday April 11th 2015.

PlotEdit

During a routine space debris collection mission, Alan accidentally discovers and activates a stealth mine left behind after the global conflict of 2040. Due to the mine’s network no longer being online, it initiates a self-destruct and begins to hunt and lock onto the nearest space vessel it can find. With various space crafts entering the vicinity, Alan tries to keep the mine occupied by making it lock onto Thunderbird 3 while John tries to locate the deactivation code.

John comes across a problem with the code and due to being unable to get any help from the archive where the file is kept, recruits the help of Lady Penelope and Parker - The ‘Grey Ninja’ - to help infiltrate and obtain the code to deactivate the mine.
