Blast off for former Yeppoon man Tim in 15 months time

FORMER Yeppoon man Tim Gibson could be blasting off into space in 15 months' time.

After winning a Lynx competition last year and attending the Lynx Space Academy at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, Tim is getting closer to seeing the world from a different angle.

Tim, 30, said he was counting down the months until take-off.

"When I get that final call with the exact dates I think the nerves will hit me... I never expected this to happen in my life."
