Shortlisted for the British Book Award 2018
'Amazing . . . A brilliant book' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2
Have you ever thought of becoming an astronaut?

Ask an Astronaut is Tim Peake’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?
And where to next – the moon, mars or beyond?
From training to launch, historic spacewalk to re-entry, Tim has a fascinating answer to everything you ever wanted to know. He reveals for readers of all ages the extraordinary secrets, cutting-edge science, and everyday wonders of life onboard the International Space Station.

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

Reviews

Ask an Astronaut can be browsed or read straight through . . . Even for those who don’t dream of leaving Earth . . . insight into the experience of someone who has is rather thrilling.
