Here at One Giant Read, we remember hitting refresh on our Twitter feed throughout the entire Principia mission just waiting to see what iconic image Tim Peake would capture next from his unique vantage point of Earth and the world above. 

So celebrated were his photographs from space that they were released in a commemorative book, Hello, Is This Planet Earth? which we reviewed here . Now his amazing photos have garnerd more praise and have been included in Time Magazine’s ‘Best Space Photos of 2016 list. With four entries on the list, it seems that people the world over are clamouring for Tim’s perspective from the International Space Station.
