APS students watch Tim Peak lift off into space

Tim Peak's historic launch into space to join the International Space Station was watched live in a number of locations around the school.  Hundred's of APS students gathered to watch the launch of Tim Peake aboard the Soyuz Rocket blast off into space. Tim and the other astronauts will spend 6 months aboard the International Space Station conducting a range of experiments some of which were designed by school children.  All of us here at APS wish Tim and his colleagues a successful mission.
