Tim Peake's incredible space mission had us all gripped,
and Blue Peter has been with him every step of the way.
From Troy's winning space patch design,
to talking to him whilst on board the International Space Station.
Hello, Barney, and hi to Blue Peter.
We couldn't wait to invite Tim in to meet some of you guys
and learn all about his time in space.
Have a look at our space fans today. Hello, space fans.
-Hey! Hi, guys.
-We've invited them into
the Blue Peter studio, and I've got to say,
they're showing you up a little bit - these outfits.
I've been completely upstaged. They're fantastic.
They're wonderful. I absolutely love them.
I wish you'd worn these leggings into space.
That would have been quite a look for you, Tim. Amazing.
-I should have run the marathon in those.
Now, you've all got burning questions, haven't you?
Kick us off, Eden. Off you go.
What everyday things did you miss when you were in space?
Wow. Well, everyday things - friends and family the most.
That's what you miss, because you're kind of detached from Earth.
But, actually, you miss the fresh air.
You miss being able to go out for a run,
the trees and the forests. I love the outdoors.
I love cycling and hiking and stuff, so I really missed that.
We've got a little question on video for you here.
Hi, Tim. My name is Zainab
and my question is,
what was your favourite thing to do
while you were in space
to pass the time?
Ah, great question.
You know, there wasn't a huge amount of free time,
but when we did have any time,
I would love to go to the Cupola window,
and that's the biggest window we have on the Space Station
and it faces planet Earth,
and that's where I would take my photographs.
It was the best thing ever.
That's amazing. We've got another question here.
How tiring was it to do the marathon in space?
It was tiring, and, you know, I thought I was going to do it
in a longer time than I did, and people said, "Wow!
"You know, you ran that really fast. You must have felt really good."
And I said, "The only reason I was running so fast
"is because my shoulders hurt so much wearing this harness
"that pulled me down onto the treadmill."
And so, halfway through, I realised, "I'm going to have to go faster
"because I need to finish as quickly as I can."
Cos I did a marathon here on planet Earth,
so I wonder how different that feels.
I didn't have sore shoulders. Just legs.
Yes, I know, but it would be interesting.
Maybe I'll get to do the London Marathon
-in another year's time, so...
-I'll do it with you.
-I'll join you again.
We've got another question over here.
What was it like going to the loo in space?
Going to the loo in space?
It's surprisingly easy and ordinary,
but it's all thanks to a switch which turns on a big fan,
and that uses airflow
and it keeps everything going in the right direction, yeah.
-Otherwise, it would get very messy.
On that note, we're going to move on to something a little bit different.
-We thought that we'd put you on the spot, Tim.
-We're going to play a little game, if you're up for it.
-Would you like to?
-OK, let's go for it.
OK, in that case, let's play Space...Or Another Place.
So, we thought we'd test your knowledge of space,
-and we're going to show you a series of pictures.
Now, some of these are pictures of space and, of course,
some of them are just of any old place
on boring old planet Earth, OK?
And you've got to tell me which it is.
-Sounds easy, doesn't it?
LAUGHTER No? Well, good.
We've made it even harder for you because, actually,
we've really zoomed in to these photos,
so it's really hard to tell whether it's space or not.
-Are you up for it?
-OK, let's give it a go.
Phew! OK, here we go. This is your first picture.
Gosh, it's a tough one.
There's obviously some shadow on the left
and a little bit of black on the right.
And the white is so white that it looks like it's in space.
It doesn't look like the light is going through any atmosphere,
-so I'm thinking...
I'm going to be completely wrong here now, but I would...
-Maybe it's a comet. Maybe it's 67P, which we landed on recently.
Very precise answer. I'm impressed. Let's have a look.
-It is indeed space.
-There we go.
to Tim Peake there. OK, next photo.
Oh. Erm, wow. That looks like a cloudy, hot atmosphere.
-I would say maybe Venus, something like that.
-What do we think, guys?
-But I could be completely wrong.
-OK, they're all behind you here, Tim.
-Let's have a look at what it might be.
BUZZER It's actually Radzi's afro.
-So, I'm afraid that was...
-That is brilliant.
That was some other place. OK, let's go to the next one.
Erm... Ooh, scratches, visor.
Erm, I would say space cos we get our visors scratched up in space.
-What do you think?
You're going to agree with him whatever cos he's Tim Peake.
-Let's have a look.
-Ah, there we go.
-I believe that's you.
-Your first walk that you did, wasn't it?
-That's right, yes.
-Is that when you took that selfie?
-Yeah, I had a few minutes to take
-a selfie out on my spacewalk, yeah.
-Surely you've got to frame that.
-What a picture.
-I will do, yeah.
OK, we're doing well. Let's move on.
Erm, wow. It looks like fireworks, so I would say Earth.
-What do you think - space or...?
-Yeah, another place.
-Another place. Let's have a look.
It's London. There we go.
And one final one, this is my favourite, actually.
I love this.
Oh... Oh, that's tough.
That is really tough. Um...
What's that little green bit?
Wow. We do have lots of green lights up in the Space Station,
which makes me kind of think of space.
Um... Any ideas?
-You think space?
-I think some other place.
Let's have a look. It is, in fact,
camera three in the studio! BUZZER
There we go. At the end of that, Tim, you managed three points. Well done.
-OK, thank you.
-A good game. Thank you so much for coming in.
And to our space fans, as well, you all look phenomenal.
