In a statement talking about the book, Tim Peake said: “It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet.

“During my mission I became determined to share this unique perspective of the one place we all call ‘home’.

“This book captures a journey of discovery, not just the discovery of planet Earth - a stunning oasis of life in the vastness of space – but also the discovery of a newfound passion for photography, which has had a major impact on me.”
