Having launched an innovative campaign website for the UK Space Agency in late September, Connect are working feverishly behind the scenes to ensure that everything is in place for the Principia Mission website, as Tim Peake embarks on his journey to the International Space Station.
Peake will make history tomorrow morning (December 15th) when he becomes the first Briton to serve a mission on board the ISS, where he will spend six months carrying out various scientific experiments.
The 43-year-old will take off from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan at 11:03AM (GMT) alongside NASA astronaut, Tim Kopra and Russian commander, Yuri Malenchenko.
You can watch the launch LIVE, here on the Connect website. The stream, hosted by the European Space Agency will begin shortly before lift-off at 11AM (GMT).
With national press coverage and exclusive programming documenting Tim’s journey, including special episodes of the BBC’s ‘Stargazing Live’ series, the launch of the Principia Mission will be one not to miss.
