Friday is officially the best day of the week #SciFRI

In 2016, British astronaut Tim Peake returned from a six-month mission to the International Space Station – one of the most challenging environments to live and work in. Dealing with extreme isolation, the ever-present threat of space debris, fire or medical emergency and the rigours of a spacewalk demand exceptional qualities such as leadership, communication and the ability to work remotely as an effective team.

Now you have an opportunity to ask Tim your questions and join the National Space Centre ONLINE for a special Q&A.

How do I ask a question?
Ask your questions in advance on our Facebook event page (we will be selecting in advance, but cannot guarantee we will be able to answer all the questions).

How to watch the LIVE session?
Join us ONLINE on our Facebook page at 14:30 on 23 October. We will also be hosting the interview in the LIVE Space gallery at the Centre on the day.

Can I watch the session at a later date?
Yes, the session will remain on our Facebook page after the event for you to watch at any time.

Who is this session suitable for?
Anybody and everybody with an interest in the past, present and future of space exploration. The National Space Centre is an educational charity and last year we hosted over 80,000 school visits, so everything we do is created to inspire and educate.

Is there a cost to watch the session?
No, please do not follow third party links that ask for information or money to participate. This is a FREE session.

Thanks to Tim Peake for his support and participation in this event.
