Description

It is already the trip of a lifetime - and now astronaut Tim Peake has been told he can stay in space for an extra couple of weeks. The Briton travelled to the International Space Station (ISS) in December, along with American Tim Kopra and Russian commander Yuri Malenchenko. The trio were due to return to Earth on June 5 but will now come back on June 18, almost two weeks later than originally planned. Another three-strong crew will take off from Earth on June 21, three days after Major Peake's return.
