Tim Peake's Biography

Tim Peake was Britain’s first official astronaut. Tim spent 186 days in space from December 2015 to July 2016.  It was an eventful six months as Tim was forced to conduct a spacewalk to repair the International Space Station’s Power Supply, drive a rover across a simulated Mars terrain and help dock two spacecraft.   He also ran the London marathon from space.

Tim began his career in the British Army. He commissioned into the Army Air Corps upon graduation from Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He left the army in 2009 after seventeen years of service and over three-thousand flying hours to his credit.

Following this, Tim beat over nine thousand other applicants for one of six places on the European Space Agency’s new astronaut training programme. Consequently, he became the first British ESA astronaut to visit the International Space Station, and is set to return in the future.

His biography ‘Limitless’ was published in October 2020.  In it, he tells an engaging story of how a short, ginger lad with a passion for flight and all things outdoors went from Soldier, Pilot, Parent to Astronaut.

In addition to his work at the ESA, Tim continues to promote opportunities for young people as an ambassador for STEM education, The Prince’s Trust and The Scout Association.
