Space Race is an episode of Thomas' Adventures of Thunderbirds Are Go ( 2015 TV Series).
Alan and James are on "space junk duty" but things take a turn for the dangerous, after one of the pieces of debris Alan attempts to clear away, turns out to be a heat-seeking SAT-MINE that activates and locks onto Thunderbird 3's heat signature. While Alan and James are forced to keep it away from other ships in orbit and locked onto his craft, Lady Penelope and Parker attempt to sneak into a top-secret storage facility and find the final digit to the mine’s deactivation code. But they only have thirty minutes until the mine's nuclear charge detonates. Thomas meanwhile discovers that he was the first piece of International rescue equipment created by Jeff Tracy and named OpThomas Prime.
