Tim Peake Prepares For Historic Spacewalk

Tim Peake Prepares For Historic Spacewalk

Major Peake is set to become the first Briton to walk in space on a six-and-a-half-hour mission to repair a broken power unit.

Tim Peake will become the first Briton to walk in space later when he ventures outside the International Space Station (ISS) to fix a broken power unit.

The spacewalk – known as Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA) – will last almost six-and-a-half hours and is scheduled to begin at 12.55pm UK time.
