What’s it like to step into the nothingness of space? What is it like to sleep in zero gravity? How does your body cope when you return to earth? Join two of the planets most decorated space explorers to get an insight into life as an astronaut. Tim Peake has returned to Earth after six months on the International Space Station as part of the European Space Agency's Principia mission. During that time, Tim carried out a large number of scientific experiments and educational projects, focusing on microgravity. He also grew plants and crystals, studied flames from a range of materials, and melted metals. He put his body through a battery of medical tests. Not only that, he drank blobs of water floating freely in space, played with a gyroscope and was chased by a gorilla! At this very special event, Tim will give a personal take on what it’s like to live and work in space. Tim Peake will be joined by his flight crew member Tim Kopra, NASA and former commander of the International Space Station. £14 / £10 Concession
