About Tim Furniss
...
On 12 April 1961, Tim went to London with his mother, Marnie from home in Epsom, Surrey, England for a shopping trip and we went to a Lyons Corner House in the Strand. Tim ate a huge lemon meringue pie and later walked to the Leicster Square tube station (the underground) and outside were placards for the first editions of the Evening News and the Evening Standard newspapers. "MAN IN SPACE". Tim became a "space nut."
Tim at age 12 In 1962, he brought his first copy of Flight International, the weekly British magazine that covered space (and of which he would become its spaceflight correspondent in 1984). Tim was obsessed with space during his schooldays and the great space decade of the Sixties. He got his first job on a magazine, Space in 1966 and at the age of 20, flew to the USA on a new Jumbo jet and headed for Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Centre (KSC) on a Greyhound bus during an 18,000 mile journey around the States.
Tim was badged up to see his first launch, a Titan IIIC, and was there to see Apollo 13 launched, photographing the astronauts as they left for the launch pad, in April 1970.
Haise Walking Out He met many astronauts whose pictures used to hang on his bedroom wall and was back at the KSC again in July 1971 to see Apollo 15 launched and to meet more of his heroes.
In 1972, Tim checked out an Apollo spacesuit at ILC Industries in Dover, Delaware.
The first of his 35-plus books was published in 1971 and he began to do interviews on local radio, while working in advertising and public relations, with BTR and Air Products. Declared redundant in 1982, Tim went freelance and continued work in radio and made his TV debut, which was followed by a lot of TV work, including extensive coverage of the Challenger accident in 1986 and resident space expert on BBC's Saturday Superstore and Going Live. In 1984, Flight International - the magazine that had fired his interest in space - had rung and asked him to "do some work".
Tim in a Space Suit Tim was Flight's spaceflight correspondent until 2006, visiting many of the world's space centres and interviewing moonmen, astronauts, cosmonauts and space chiefs and covering Space Shuttle and other launches and missions. He was one of the first journalists allowed into the Star City cosmonaut training centre, near Moscow in 1984 and in 1988, one of the first British journalists to cover a manned launch at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, the same year in which he moved from his hometown of Epsom, Surrey to an "electronic cottage" near Bideford, Devon - one of the country's first "remote" journalists.
In 1994, he joined the STS 62 Space Shuttle crew for launch, in-orbit operations and landing simulation sessions at Houston. Tim also operates a commercial spaceflight photo library, Genesis which he established in 1990. It now specialises in space history images. He presents entertaining and well-received lectures for schools, colleges and other audiences and also presents "Adventures of a Space Nut", an "evening with" style presentation for theatres, telling the story of a 12 year old boy, his ambition to be space journalist and the adventures of reporting space events around the world.
