Pupils from schools across Norfolk spoke live to Major Tim Peake on board the International Space Station today. The City of Norwich school won a contest to link up with the astronaut during his time on the ISS.

The pupils asked a range of questions from 'what happens to the blood if you cut yourself in space' to 'what's your favourite place to fly over' to 'what sort of experiments are you doing in space'? The 10 minute live link up was made possible by the Amateur Radio Station on the International Space Station' team and the UK Border Agency. The ISS orbits the earth every 90 minutes and travels at 17,500 mph.
