Peake Sunday

1a

British astronaut Major Tim Peake is returning to earth at 10.15 BST on Saturday after having spent six months on the International Space Station.

Despite working 14-hour days and undertaking over 250 scientific experiments during his time on board, Peake has also been staying in touch with earth via social media.

Peake has been sharing beautiful photos with his 240k Instagram followers and the images have been transporting people out of this world.

Let’s not forget his Instagram has also hosted a series of funny video experiments, including a flipping marathon, backwards somersaults and trying to answer the question – can you really get dizzy in space?

Asked about his return, Peake told reporters: “It goes without saying that I’m looking forward to seeing my family but also enjoying planet Earth.”

“I most miss the rain. I’ve not had a shower for six months so the feeling of nice cold drizzle on my face seems quite blissful. I’m sure most people in the UK will find that remarkable.”

    No shower for 6 months? I was going bonkers in the Hospital after 1 week. He should have read the Job Description. The inside of the ISS must smell like an old sweaty sneaker but no one complains, maybe they wear noseplugs or use a lot of Glade.

    Space air dilemma, what happens to the odor when you fart on the ISS?

    Of course there is always the possibility of ‘fart-free’ food I suppose.

    HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to our two fathers, Den and Doc! Hope you guys heard from your kids. Pete and Jill and families came over to see Bobber today.

    One step closer to getting the pool user-friendly. Pete helped me today with it, the rest should be easy to handle now. Most of the heavy gunk gone off the floor, now vacuuming will work.

    Brandi Way loop to take some pix but the stick walking time to the pizza parlor was 54 minutes. No wildlife today but the last time up this way there was a spectacular smallish bird with a red-orange head and bright yellow breast.

    I wish Kirby would quit inviting his weird friends over.
