Tim Peake who was the first British astronaut in space for 20 years is to extend his stay in space by 2 weeks.

Originally due to return on the 5th June, now Tim and the space team will be coming back to Earth on the 18th June.

Mission controllers say its because they want to keep the space station fully manned for as long as possible during the changeover of crew.
