Spend an evening with astronauts Tim Peake and Tim Kopra as they share their stories and answer questions about living and working on the International Space Station.
Tim Peake is the first British European Space Agency astronaut, having spent over 6 months on board the International Space Station from 15 December 2015 – 18 June 2016, as part of the Principia mission. The UK public followed the Principia mission with interest – its launch watched by over 15,000 people at events held across the UK. From hosting live-streamed science lessons with schools across the country to participating in the first spacewalk outside the ISS by a British astronaut, Tim Peake’s own updates from the Station were viewed by millions.
The Royal Albert Hall’s founding purpose is to promote the Arts and Sciences, so it is entirely fitting that the UK’s first spacewalking astronaut should make an appearance here, almost exactly four months after touching down after a historic six-month stay on the International Space Station.
