Tim Peake aims to rekindle hullabaloo of Moon assignments – BBC News
British astronaut Tim Peake says he hopes his mission to the space platform will generate an Apollo-like fervour.
Mr Peake told BBC News that he is going to the orbiting laboratory primarily to do discipline, but that his priority is necessary to share his experiences.
He believes his mission can inspire more young people to become interested in science and engineering.
Mr Peake’s six-month stint on the terminal begins in December when he leaves Earth on a Russian Soyuz rocket.
