British Secretary of State for Universities and Science David Willetts attends a press conference at the Science Museum in central London on May 20, 2013, where it was announced the astronaut Major Tim Peake will be joining the International Space Station (ISS) in late 2015. A former army helicopter pilot was on May 20 named as the first 'home-grown' British astronaut to head to the International Space Station. Major Tim Peake, 41, will fly out to the ISS in November 2015 as part of a six-man crew, becoming the first Briton ever to travel to space on a British government-funded mission.
