Our patron: UK Astronaut Tim Peake

We are very proud that UNSA’s patron is the British and European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake, who flew to the International Space Station in November 2015 where he lived and worked as a scientist for six months.

As well as being an astronaut Tim is a husband, a father to two young boys and his hobbies include skiing, climbing, running, flying and quantum physics.

Great pic Thomas Pesquet – I was there in spirit for the London Marathon... next year in person perhaps. Thanks for the #StGeorgesDay shout out! ... See moreSee less

Today is UN international English language day and St George's, as well as the London Marathon (although Tim Peake didn't take part, didn't you promise to run it this year Tim?). Four reasons to say hi London and the UK! Clouds from the north can’t veil your lights, as the sun sets in the distance flic.kr/p/Tu5LgJ
