Looking Back at Earth with Astronaut Tim Peake
To follow along on Tim’s return to Earth, follow @astro_timpeake on Instagram.
Tim Peake (@astro_timpeake) is going to have epic #TBT images after six months aboard the International Space Station (@iss). “I use social media to bring as many people as possible with me onboard mission #Principia,” says Tim. “Here, I can share the beauty of our planet and the science behind space exploration.” And what an adventure it’s been: he was the first British astronaut to visit the ISS, as well as the first British astronaut to complete a spacewalk. Tim also holds the record for the fastest marathon run in space.
On Saturday, June 18, Tim and two crew mates will be returning to Earth. We’re wishing them a safe journey home.
