Grandson Logan meets U.K. Astronaut Tim Peake

We visited the Farnborough Air Show yesterday. A great day out as always. Chatted to the various staff members on the ESA stand and the UK Space Agency stand. Listened to a lecture by Tim Peake.

He has had a very busy week and all of the media want a bit of him as the mission reaches the next milestone (mission name chosen-check). Space food chosen-check.

The mission patch is to be designed by children through the Blue Peter TV programme later this year.

Our grandson (space mad, but he also has a passion for steam engines and aeroplanes, especially loud ones) met up with Tim Peake at the airshow.

Trip to the National Space Centre Leicester

On a recent trip to the National Space Centre at Leicester our grandson Logan needed a little persuading to dress up at first.

I told him the button clearly read ‘Do not Touch’ but his curiosity got the better of him and he activated the zero-g mode in the Columbus lab mock-up!
