British astronaut Tim Peake set off into space to the International Space Station (ISS) on Tuesday morning.
Lots of people online celebrated Peake's achievement and hailed him as the "first Briton" in space. Except, wait a minute...
It turns out a number of people weren't aware that Helen Sharman was the first British astronaut who set off into space.
Sharman travelled into space more than 20 years ago, in 1991.
It pissed a lot of people off.
Many people quickly took to Twitter to congratulate Peake while clarifying that he wasn't the first.
Some people justified the "first official Briton in space" label by saying that Peake was the first British government-funded astronaut.
The sound of a million people typing well-technically-she-wasn't-official could be heard across the internet.
This made Sharman not a "proper" contender for the title, a statement echoed in some media reports.
Some pointed out that Peake was the first *male* British astronaut.
Following the furore, people began to refer to the factually correct "first British astronaut", Helen Sharman.
Either way, yay for British people in space!
