Wiltshire Astronaut Tim Peake set off on a landmark flight today to the International Space Station!
The rocket carrying Tim to the International Space Station blasted off from Kazhakstan earlier.
He's the first British astronaut to board the International Space Station (ISS).
David Cameron and Sir Elton John are among those who've sent good luck messages to Major Tim:
