Welcome #CIMON, our new free-flying AI assistant on board the International Space Station. I think the wake-up command should be, “Open the pod bay doors, CIMON.” What would you choose?

Tim Peake shared Great Ormond Street Hospital and Children's Charity's post.

Thank you Lion Ward Great Ormond Street Hospital and Children's Charity and astronaut Nicole Stott for letting me join your art project yesterday... I can't wait to see your designs in space! Such a great initiative.

“Hi, I’m Nikhil, I’m 10 years old, and today we’re drawing pictures of our dreams that will go onto a spacesuit, which may go into space!” 🚀 Today, GOSH patients were joined by former NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott (AKA the Artistic Astronaut) for an exciting art workshop, to raise awareness of childhood cancer. They painted a canvas that will be quilted into a spacesuit and launched into space next year! British Astronaut Tim Peake also joined via Skype to further inspire patients. The project is a collaboration between the organisations Space For Art, from the US, and Unity, from Russia. They are travelling hospitals worldwide, so patients can contribute their dreams. 🌍
