First up there's been some exciting news about this guy.
Tim Peake is going to be heading back into space!
But not just yet - he's only been back for six months.
Tim made the announcement while showing off the capsule
which took him up to the International Space Station.
And the great news is that the European Space Agency and the UK
will be involved in the space station programme out till 2024.
That gives us a second opportunity to go back to the space station. Tim
made history last year when he became the first person representing
Britain to live on the International Space Station. During the six months
he spent orbiting he became the first British astronaut to do a
spacewalk. He ran a marathon at that and even explain what happens to
Peru in space. Take the cap off, turn on the ban and the FO keeps
everything going down the pipe and also with number to, the airflow
does the same thing. And he is pretty inspirational. How would I
describe Tim Peake? Interesting. Awesome. Amazing. Courageous. Out of
this world. How excited I knew about him going back to space? I think it
is really exciting. He has only just got back and hasn't seen his family
for ages. I think it would be quite fun. I think it would be a chance
him to do he didn't do last time last time this time. So, what should
he do this time around? I want to see him sing and upload it all over
you tube. I would like to see him do the dab challenged to see how many
he can do. I want to see him do a flip and land it. In space it might
not land and it is really hard to do it. I want to see him learn at least
one new skill when he is in space. We know he is going back but how
will he get there? You can imagine what going into space would really
be like in the national science Museum in London.
