Astronaut Tim Peake’s first ever live UK tour launches 24th October 2021. With unprecedented access and never-before-seen footage and photographs, the tour provides a chance to discover the wonder of space and the place we call home. Sharing his passion for aviation, exploration and adventure, Tim will be a guide through life in the International Space Station and beyond. Tickets for Tim Peake: My Journey to Space can be found here.

Tim’s debut children’s book, Swarm Rising, publishes 30 September 2021 (Hodder Children’s Books). Co-authored with best-selling writer Steve Cole, this fast-paced adventure is set in a world of space-age science where aliens can travel through the internet and bend the laws of physics: “Hi-powered, hi-concept and hi-jinks. Swarm Rising has it all!” - Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl.

Tim Peake himself has also been turned into a superhero character in a comic book devised by the Institute of Engineering and Technology to promote STEM subjects and careers to children. “I’m so excited to have been invited to join the STEM Squad,” Tim said. “I’ve always loved superheroes but never imagined I could get to become one.”
