Astronaut Tim Peake will become the first British man to board the international space station on Tuesday.

Overnight the rocket that will take him there has been moved to its take off point and assembled.

The 50 metre long Soyuz craft was taken to the launch site in Kazakhstan, in Eastern Europe.

And Tim's mum was there to get a sneak peak!
