Tim Peake to make Deansgate landing

Britain’s first official astronaut Tim Peake is visiting Waterstones Deansgate next month to sign copies of his new book.

Tim finished his famous 186-day Principia mission working on the International Space Station for Expedition 46/47 when he landed back on Earth 18 June 2016.

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.


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?

Making space as accessible as possible, 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.

Tim Peake’s previous Hello, is this planet Earth?, his photographic essay of his mission aboard the International Space Station, was Waterstones' must-have title from last Christmas, underlining not just the appeal of Tim Peake but our thirst for the new adventures of space.

All royalties received from the book will be donated to The Prince’s Trust.

Tickets cost £20 and include a copy of Ask an Astronaut and an opportunity to have it signed by Tim.
