Tim Peake: British Astronaut Captures London At Midnight From Space, But Concludes He'd 'Rather Be Up Here'

British astronaut Tim Peake spent his Saturday night photographing London from space and concluded "i'd rather be up here, but only just".

Peake, 43, has become well known for his photographic prowess, having taken a selfie when he became the first Briton to complete a spacewalk earlier this month.

He has also posted a series of pictures of him brewing coffee in space.
