British astronaut Tim Peake says he hopes his mission to the space station will generate an Apollo-like fervour.

Mr Peake told BBC News that he is going to the orbiting lab primarily to do science, but that his priority will be to share his experiences.

He believes his mission will inspire more young people to become interested in science and engineering.

Mr Peake’s six-month stint on the station begins in December when he leaves Earth on a Russian Soyuz rocket.

Friday will see him go in front of the media in his home country for the final time before his great adventure gets under way.
