First up there's been some exciting news about this guy.

:00:12.:00:15.

Tim Peake is going to be heading back into space!

:00:16.:00:19.

But not just yet - he's only been back for six months.

:00:20.:00:22.

Tim made the announcement while showing off the capsule

:00:23.:00:24.

which took him up to the International Space Station.

:00:25.:00:32.

And the great news is that the European Space Agency and the UK

:00:33.:00:37.

will be involved in the space station programme out till 2024.

:00:38.:00:42.

That gives us a second opportunity to go back to the space station. Tim

:00:43.:00:48.

made history last year when he became the first person representing

:00:49.:00:52.

Britain to live on the International Space Station. During the six months

:00:53.:00:56.

he spent orbiting he became the first British astronaut to do a

:00:57.:01:01.

spacewalk. He ran a marathon at that and even explain what happens to

:01:02.:01:06.

Peru in space. Take the cap off, turn on the ban and the FO keeps

:01:07.:01:11.

everything going down the pipe and also with number to, the airflow

:01:12.:01:17.

does the same thing. And he is pretty inspirational. How would I

:01:18.:01:23.

describe Tim Peake? Interesting. Awesome. Amazing. Courageous. Out of

:01:24.:01:29.

this world. How excited I knew about him going back to space? I think it

:01:30.:01:37.

is really exciting. He has only just got back and hasn't seen his family

:01:38.:01:42.

for ages. I think it would be quite fun. I think it would be a chance

:01:43.:01:47.

him to do he didn't do last time last time this time. So, what should

:01:48.:01:54.

he do this time around? I want to see him sing and upload it all over

:01:55.:02:01.

you tube. I would like to see him do the dab challenged to see how many

:02:02.:02:09.

he can do. I want to see him do a flip and land it. In space it might

:02:10.:02:14.

not land and it is really hard to do it. I want to see him learn at least

:02:15.:02:19.

one new skill when he is in space. We know he is going back but how

:02:20.:02:26.

will he get there? You can imagine what going into space would really

:02:27.:02:32.

be like in the national science Museum in London.

:02:33.:02:36.

Did you know that right now, across the country,

:02:37.:02:38.

there are hundreds of thousands of you looking after a parent,

:02:39.:02:41.

These children are called young carers, and while many of them

:02:42.:02:45.

are happy looking after a disabled - or sick - relative, they also

:02:46.:02:48.

face many difficulties, as Jenny's been been finding out.

:02:49.:02:50.

Hi, I'm Morgan, and I'm a young carer.

:02:51.:02:52.

I unload the dishwasher and I help out with jobs

:02:53.:02:55.

Morgan's mum has a condition which causes her muscles

:02:56.:03:00.

It means she gets tired very easily and can't stand or

:03:01.:03:04.

What do you think are the best bits about being a young carer?

:03:05.:03:10.

To put a smile on someone else's face gives me joy.

:03:11.:03:14.

Not only am I doing something to help someone, at least they don't

:03:15.:03:18.

There are lots of children like Morgan in the UK.

:03:19.:03:23.

It's thought around 700,000 young people are caring for a

:03:24.:03:26.

A survey by the Carers Trust Charity found it difficult for

:03:27.:03:32.

some young carers to achieve what they want to in school and in

:03:33.:03:35.

One of the reasons is they have to spend time looking after the

:03:36.:03:40.

Do you ever feel like you're missing out?

:03:41.:03:44.

There are some times where, if we plan to do something,

:03:45.:03:48.

by the end of the day and she's got too tired, we have to maybe cancel

:03:49.:03:52.

it, but my mum always tries to get me there.

:03:53.:03:55.

Sometimes it's hard because I've got a lot of stuff to do.

:03:56.:04:02.

Do you ever worry about the future and that he might have

:04:03.:04:05.

Sometimes I wonder if I will get good grades because people are

:04:06.:04:11.

saying practise makes perfect, you must revise.

:04:12.:04:14.

I want to have good grades for the future.

:04:15.:04:20.

What advice do you have for other young carers who are

:04:21.:04:22.

If you do have a worry, don't keep it in.

:04:23.:04:26.

If you are finding things hard, you should ask

:04:27.:04:28.

for help because she had shouldn't have to deal with

:04:29.:04:30.

Go to your teacher or whoever you are caring for and say, "Can you

:04:31.:04:44.

help me with this because it's getting a bit too much for me?"

:04:45.:04:46.

There's more about young carers online, including animations of some

:04:47.:04:49.

That's also where you can get help and advice if anything

:04:50.:04:53.
