Here's what London looks like from the International Space Station

Isabelle Aron

Ever wondered what London looks like from outer space? For those of us that don't fancy the whole freeze-dried food and no-gravity thing, astronaut Tim Peake has saved us a trip with these ace pictures of London and the UK taken from space. Tim Peake posted the pictures at midnight on Saturday night, which show London's street lights beaming all the way up to the International Space Station, where he's currently over six weeks into a six-month mission with the European Space Agency. And we can probably all agree that London on a Saturday night looks a lot more majestic from outer space than down on the streets of Shoreditch waiting for a night bus.
