Tim was a helicopter test pilot and instructor before joining ESA’s astronaut corps in 2009. 

He was assigned his mission last May and has been training non-stop to be part of Expedition 46/47 to the orbital outpost.

He is following a long line of British explorers and scientists, stretching from the South Pole and the Nile to the Himalayas and now to outer space.
