Inspiral Carpets dedicate ‘Saturn V’ to Tim Peake


The iconic group Inspiral Carpets from Oldham, Greater Manchester, have dedicated their classic song Saturn V to ESA astronaut Tim Peake. Formed by musicians Graham Lambert and Stephen Holt in 1983, Inspiral Carpets were one of the bands associated with the ‘Madchester’ scene that came to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band send this message: “From Inspiral Carpets, with respect and love, to our friend Tim Peake!”

Tim Peake is set for launch to the International Space Station on his five-month Principia mission on 15 December 2015.
