First Briton in Space!

This week we sent Briton Tim Peake into space to live on the International Space Station for 6months. A lot of papers were calling him the first Briton in space and that just isn’t true! Tim is the first ‘official’ Briton in space as the UK are funding his trip. However Helen Sharman (yay a woman) was the first Briton in space back in 1991 when she went with the Russians. 

I had the enormous pleasure of meeting Helen Sharman this week at the Science Museum in London and she is incredibly intelligent, articulate and just wonderful.
