British astronaut Tim Peake has tweeted for the first time since landing on the International Space Station.
Major Peake, who made the journey into space for the first time on Tuesday, said he had enjoyed an "incredible ride", and praised his commander, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, for his work during a tense docking at the space station.
Malenchenko docked the Soyuz capsule manually after its autopilot aborted an initial attempt.
A message from mission control at the time said: "Congratulations, we were a little bit worried from our side."
If you want to catch a glimpse of Tim Peake and the International Space Station, then make sure you look up at around 5pm this evening.
You can see the station everyday and thanks to this website from Nasa, they will tell you where to look depending on where you are:
