Tim Peake shared ESA European Space History's post.

How time flies... #OTD two years ago I was feeling a bit hot and sweaty! Thank you to everyone who supported #Principia and who continue to keep the legacy of that mission going through brilliant #science and #education programmes.

On this day: 18 June 2016, ESA astronaut Tim Peake, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and NASA astronaut Tim Kopra landed in a remote area near the town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, after six months in space as members of Expedition 46/47 on board the International Space Station. Here's Tim seated in a chair near his Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft just minutes after landing. See www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2016/06/Tim_Peake_after_landing6

I remember that Tim was the only Astronaut smiling while the other two looked like they were about to be sick.

I followed your mission, Tim. I'd hang out of the bedroom window to wave and shout 'hello!' as you flew over. Heaven knows what the neighbour's thought. 😂 You also timed your mission so very well. Blasting off to get out of Christmas shopping, and then landing in time for Father's Day. Couldn't have planned it better. 😆😆

Tim Peake spoke very eloquently at Stephen Hawking's memorial service last Friday. I was sitting in the Nave, listening and watching and thinking "Amazing, I am in the presence of someone who has been in space!" whilst feeling very humble and awestruck to be celebrating the life and work of one of the most incredible people in the world. A very special moment in time.
