Weird first pic sent back from UK's first astronaut


Hope Major Peake is okay.


Perhaps he’s getting some sort of facial?


I thought this was a picture of the UK’s first astronaut…


I hope he comes back with plenty of great stories to tell like a lot of other astronauts do.


It’s a lot to do with definitions really to claim he’s the first British astronaut.

Helen Sharman went into space 24 years ago but it was a Russian backed mission and Michael Foale was born in England and went up with NASA but has an American mother and dual nationality.

So he’s actually the first solely British citizen to have been into space with NASA.
