The British astronaut Tim Peake has returned home after spending time on the International Space Station (ISS) for the last six months. Shortly after his return to Earth, a press conference was held at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany, Major Peake, 44 to explain the details of the mission.

During the 186 days that Peake spent on the ISS, he participated in more than 250 scientific experiments, performed a space walk, ran alongside the London Marathon contestants on a treadmill and helped with a number of school projects and educational activities.

For this, Tim Peake was awarded with the Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George honour at the Queen’s Birthday for “extraordinary service beyond our planet”.

As of today, Peake and his crew mates Tim Korpa and Yuri Malenchenko are back on Earth which they got back to in a Soyuz space capsule that measured just over six feet across.
