You Should See The Photos Tim Peake Took From Space
These beat your mid-flight Instagrams hands down.
Tim Peake, the British astronaut who spent six months on board the International Space Station, posted some amazing photos from space. Like this one he took of London.
Near the beginning of the mission, Peake had a photography lesson from fellow astronaut Scott Kelly.
