Tim Peake at NASA

It’s a very busy year for ESA astronauts. Following Samantha Cristoforetti’s return to Earth on June 11th, two more members of ESA’s astronaut corps are on the ISS this year. Andreas Mogensen from Denmark launched in September, and Tim Peake is set to fly in December. Both astronauts visited the Johnson Space Centre in Houston, Texas, as part of the intensive pre-flight training programme.
