OK, it is over half a century since Russia launched man into space. Britain is now finally to have its own first official astronaut. Major Tim Peake, 41, was selected to fly on a five-month mission on the ISS, in a move hailed as a major boost for the UK’s space industry.

This BBC clip shows Tim, ready for lift-off on-board a Soyuz rocket launcher. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35073599?SThisFB
