Astronaut Peake training underwater

The UK's first official astronaut, Major Tim Peake, has been training underwater to prepare him for space.

He's heading to the International Space Station for a mission next year.

Major Peake is training at the European Astronaut Centre in Germany, where he's using a pool to try and experience what it's like to work in zero gravity.
