      No, I can wear pretty much whatever I like to work – although I have to dress smartly when important people are around!

      We dont have a regular uniform but we do wear alot sweat shirts or fleeces with Mission Patches for those missions that we have worked – including ESA crew…. When Tim Peake flies in December we will wear his mission insignia:

      Only when I go outside! When i’m in my lab I can wear what I like (i’m actually wearing my pj bottoms at the moment!). When I go outside though I have to wear special polar equipment (the blue suit I am wearing in some of my pictures) because of the really low temperatures here.
