EXHIBIT A: When Tim Peake's space suit was being tested whilst before liftoff to the International Space Station, he said goodbye to his children like this.

EXHIBIT B: The 117 song playlist Tim Peake chose to accompany his mission, which includes records by Depeche Mode, Adele and Spandau Ballet.

Tim Peake has also pledged to take Kasabian into space. Have a big long think about what we're actually doing here. https://t.co/qZOGisILpb

EXHIBIT C: When he wrote stuff down on a piece of a paper, whilst travelling more than 8000 miles an hour.

A man I don’t know just gave a thumbs-up to camera and I waved enthusiastically and a little tearily at him. #timpeake

EXHIBIT D: That BBC's Stargazing Live caught him giving a thumbs up during commentary, resulting in Brian Cox, Dara O'Briain, Commander Hadfield and a lot of kids to lose their shit.
