Tim Peake joined the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2009, after an 18-year career in the Army.

During his historic visit to the International Space Centre he spacewalked while orbiting earth.

“One thing I never anticipated in being selected for the ESA programme, was just how much my own experiences would inspire and fascinate others,” says Tim.

“I will always be mesmerised by space and space travel, but I am just as honoured to be able to travel the country sharing my story and experiences.”

Tim is promising unprecedented access covering his entire journey to the International Space Centre.

Starting with training, punters will get an inside look into every phase of the mission, including the launch, spacewalk and re-entry.
