Drawing on his extraordinary experiences as the first British ESA astronaut to visit the International Space Station (ISS), this special event will see Tim reflect on some of the most interesting, funny and curious questions he has been asked since his return to Earth.

Produced by Penguin Live, the evening features Tim in conversation with actor and TV presenter Dallas Campbell (The Gadget ShowBang Goes the Theory), and will delight adults and children alike with exclusive pictures from Tim’s space journey, plus unique opportunities to ask Tim your burning questions about life amongst the stars and meet him in person after the talk.

More about the author

Ask an Astronaut

Tim Peake

The new book from astronaut Tim Peake, the number one bestselling author of Hello, is this planet Earth?

How does it feel to orbit the earth ten times faster than a speeding bullet?
What’s it like to eat, sleep and go to the toilet in space?
And where to next – the Moon, Mars or beyond?

Ask an Astronaut is Tim’s personal guide to life in space, based on his historic Principia mission, and the thousands of questions he has been asked since his return to Earth.

Accessible, in-depth, and written with his characteristic warmth, Tim shares his thoughts on every aspect of his mission. From training to launch, from his historic spacewalk to re-entry, he reveals for readers of all ages the cutting-edge science behind his ground-breaking experiments, and the wonders of day-to-day life on board the International Space Station.

The public were invited to submit questions using the hashtag #askanastronaut, and a selection are answered by Tim in the book, which will be accompanied with illustrations, diagrams and never-before-seen photos.

Tim is pleased to announce that, as with his previous book, royalties received from the book will be donated to The Prince’s Trust.
