In April, we had the privilege of recording with British ESA astronaut Tim Peake for our latest Touch to See book for blind children. As part of the audio guide for Goodnight Spaceman by Michelle Robinson and Nick East, Tim reads out the book’s introductory letter, which offers a glimpse into his life as an astronaut.
Rewind to February 2018, when we asked our library members, volunteers and supporters to send us the question they’d most like to ask a real-life astronaut Tim Peake! We picked out our favourites and during the recording session for Goodnight Spaceman, we put them to the man himself.
Click below to hear all of the chosen questions, and more importantly, Tim’s answers!
A huge thank you to Tim Peake and the European Space Agency for making the recording session and Q&A possible.
