      Haha, I’m a bit jealous to tell the truth! But Tim is the right guy to have up there – he’s been training for years to do this and now he’s just arrived! I am so excited for him there.

      Most of the work that goes into a space mission happens on the ground by thousands of people who build, test and monitor the spacecraft, so it’s all part of the same effort, really!
