Click on the ‘Download resources’ tab for: a powerpoint presentation pack; a leaflet on careers in space, Astronaut FAQ and a ‘Flat Tim’ to be used as a lifesize cardboard cut-out.

The presentation slides have been updated since Tim’s return to Earth in June 2016 and include:

  • An overview of Tim’s mission from launch, living and working on the ISS, to landing back on Earth

Add-on slides for a more detailed focus on:

Please feel free to use and adapt the slides as you wish. Do not try and get through them all, there are 84 slides for you to delete as appropriate.
