Major Timothy Nigel Peake was born in Chichester, on 7 April 1972. He is currently serving as the first British citizen to live on the International Space Station in 20 years. His space photography is getting a ton of interest at the moment.
Peake beat more than 8,000 applicants to be accepted into the European Space Agency. He will join Expedition 46 to the ISS, launching in Winter 2015.
Tim Peake, the British astronaut on board the International Space Station (ISS), has posted this photo he took of London from space.
Last week Peake got a photography lesson from station commander Scott Kelly.
Ever since then his space photography game has really stepped up a notch.
We don’t think Tim Peake’s too shabby at Earth photography either.
Does bit of the planet look familiar?
Some of the most breathtaking photos come from the unique perspective astronauts get of aurora on the horizon.
And the moment that a gorgeous sunrise meets an aurora is pretty magical too.
This is the moment Tim Peake and the International Space Station flew through an aurora.
