Tim Peake, once a helicopter pilot in Northern Ireland, has retained his sky-high ambitions after it was announced that he is set to become the first British astronaut in history.

Space travel represents one of the last frontiers, and the mystery and magnitude of such an adventure still leaves the rest of us in thrall.

Despite all the previous and current missions, including the Americans landing men on the Moon, the concept of space travel leaves us gazing at the stars and marvelling that human beings from our planet are out there.

Tim Peake has had many challenging moments in his career but this must rank as the greatest. We all wish him the very best in his mission.
