Sign up for the Cosmic Classroom!
Today Tim Peake blasted off into space to begin his Principia mission to the International Space Station (ISS).
The launch was streamed live at 11:03 today and the rocket should dock the ISS at 17:24.
In early 2016 there is an opportunity for schools to spend 20 minutes linked up LIVE to the international Space Station and join Tim on his mission as part of the Cosmic Classroom. TES want to make this the world’s largest schools and space science event!
If your class would like the opportunity to interact with an astronaut you can register your interest here and you will receive more information in the new year.
