Video: High-fives all round as astronaut Tim Peake makes star appearance at W5 in Belfast

Around 200 school kids had an 'out of this world' experience at Belfast's W5 on Tuesday when British astronaut Tim Peake made a star appearance.

Tim spent six months on the International Space Station - the first British astronaut to spend so long in orbit - from December last year until May this year.

He was at the W5 at the Odyssey Pavilion as part of a UK tour organised by the European Space Agency to thank people who had supported him during his time high above the earth.

After taking questions he thrilled the young people by posing for photographs, signing autographs and giving a few high fives.
