Publisher's Summary

What happens when you sneeze in space? Was it fun to do a space walk? How squashed were you in the capsule on the way back? What were your feelings as you looked down on Earth for the first time? Were you ever scared? Where to next - the moon, Mars, or beyond?

Based on his historic mission to the International Space Station, Ask an Astronaut is Tim Peake's guide to life in space and his answers to the thousands of questions he has been asked since his return to Earth. With explanations ranging from the mundane (how do you wash your clothes or go to the bathroom while in orbit?) to the profound (do humans have a duty to explore the unknown?), all written in Tim's characteristically warm style, Tim shares his thoughts on every aspect of space exploration.

From training for the mission to launch to his historic spacewalk to reentry, he reveals for listeners of all ages the cutting-edge science behind his groundbreaking experiments and the wonders of daily life onboard the International Space Station.

Inspiring

I've been longing to get a copy of this book since it was released. After such a long wait for it I was not disappointed.

I closely followed Tim Peake, Tim Kopra and Yuri Malenchenko's expedition to the ISS from start to end, listening to morning DPCs, seeing their media engagement programs and, in my free time, learning about the Space Station and a bit of Russian along the way. These three men, crew mates and ground team inspired me to try and pursue a career to aid space exploration in any way I can.

Yet I'm only a middle class Ecuadorian girl, with subpar maths skills and no University studies.

But I am young, and I still have time to do something meaningful in my life if I work hard for it - maybe aiding human spaceflight in any way I can, who knows?

Mr Peake's words and insight on his path and time in the ISS gave me the optimism (and occasionally a good laugh) that I needed to make the next step. Thank you Tim.
