Tim Peake prepared for re-entry while still on Earth

Tim Peake's mission is coming to an end but he was preparing for the re-entry while still on Earth.

The high-impact landing is "like sitting in a small car and being hit by a big truck," he has been told.

The UK astronaut kept a video diary for the Horizon programme - in this clip he experiences high G-Forces in a centrifuge and is cast for his special seat in the Soyuz capsule.
