The force is with Tim Peake at the ISS

Lots of people turned out to the Science museum for the first British astronaut arrival at the International Space Station (ISS).

It took a bit of a while to enter the ISS after a problem with the docking system. But a beaming Tim Peake arrived and hugged the current crew saying that the “first sunrise was spectacular”.

Stargazing live took place at the science museum with a link up to the space station.

The event was celebrated with an evening of space related events at the science museum. It had been a long time since I had been back at the museum. Nearly 10 years, below are some of the photos I took on the night. 

Which included food tasting, printing, art and talks about the various exhibits.
One of the talks was from the makers of the Raspberry Pii. Tim Peake has taken a couple of them up on the space station with programs written by school children. Definitely a good example of inspiring kids to take up programming and space science. Plus an all British computer.

Tim Peake will be on the space station for the next 6 months and will be doing lots of experiments. Check out the ESPA website for more information. Below are my photograph links are for Flickr and  Instagram.
