Astronaut Tim Peake returns from space

After 186 days in space, British astronaut Tim Peake has braved a 27,000 km/h ride home.

He and two other crew members have just returned from the International Space Station.

Mr Peake called the re-entry the best ride he's ever been on.

He couldn't stand or walk after so long in zero gravity, but he said the fresh air felt wonderful and he was looking forward to a pizza and a beer.

They call the landing site in Kazakhstan "arrivals Planet Earth".
