Tim Peake is officially on a spacewalk! British astronaut Tim Peake is now outside the International Space Station, on his first spacewalk.
Major Peake is stepping into space as part of a six-and-a-half-hour mission to repair a broken power unit.
“It’s a privilege,” he said in response to station commander Scott Kelly saying he was pleased to see the Union Jack on the sleeve of a spacewalking astronaut.
Unfortunately it is difficult to see him at the moment because the station has moved round to the night-time side of the planet.
