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.”
