      Hi spacefan226,

      Tim is staying at :envihab which is a special space laboratory here on Earth based at the German Space Agency.

      Our teams will look after Tim as he gets used to gravity again and take blood, urine and muscle samples. He will also undergo several exercise, balance and bone tests to see how his body has changed in space.
