At London’s Science Museum’s unveiling of the Soyuz capsule which brought Tim Peake safely back to Earth, it was announced by Business Secretary Greg Clarke that Tim would be heading back to the ISS in the coming years. While there are few specific details about when the new mission would be launched, the European Space Agency confirmed the announcement with ESA director Jan Woerner, saying “We have organised that Tim can fly again. We hope you are ready for it, and we hope you are ready Tim.”
