How does it feel to orbit the earth ten times faster than a speeding bullet?

What’s it like to eat, sleep and go to the toilet in space?

And what’s next – the moon, Mars or beyond?
 
Ask an Astronaut is Tim’s personal guide to life in space, based on his historic Principia mission, and the thousands of questions he has been asked since his return to Earth. 
 
Accessible, in-depth, and written with his characteristic warmth, Tim shares his thoughts on every aspect of his mission. From training to launch, from his historic spacewalk to re-entry, he reveals for readers of all ages the cutting-edge science behind his ground-breaking experiments, and the wonders of day-to-day life on board the International Space Station.

Tim Peake’s previous Hello, is this planet Earth?, his photographic essay of his mission aboard the International Space Station, was Waterstones' must-have title from last Christmas, underlining not just the appeal of Tim Peake but our thirst for the new adventures of space.

24 million people watched Tim blast off and over 2 million fans continue to follow his updates across social media. In the Queen's birthday honours, Tim was made a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George, an award given to those who have given distinguished service overseas, or, in Tim's case, in space. 

Tim is pleased to announce that, as with his previous book, royalties received from the book will be donated to The Prince’s Trust.
