“It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet.”


“Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do something you’ve set your heart on.”


“Did spaceflight change my perspective? Absolutely. Did it change me as much as becoming a father did? Not even close.”


“Who knows where the inspiration that will carry someone onward for the rest of their life may come from? The possibilities are limitless.”

Eyes up for another great @Space_Station pass tonight over the UK & N. Europe.

Look west from 1819hrs GMT for a steadily moving, bright dot of light. It should pass high overhead heading east & disappear into Earth’s shadow after 4-5mins.

Good luck and 🤞for clear skies.

A head scratcher of a game especially when you’re playing against Captain Chaos and The Disruptor 🤪.

Trying to beat that Sunday evening ‘back to school’ feeling.
