Tim Peake's historic capsule lands in November, along with a space-age virtual reality experience narrated by the astronaut himself.
On 18 June 2016, Major Tim Peake returned to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module after six months on board the International Space Station, where he conducted experiments, walked in space and even ran a marathon. The Science Museum Group and Samsung have joined forces to bring this historic piece of engineering to Locomotion, Shildon, from 22 November.
Ages 13+ can also retrace Tim’s 400km journey back to Earth from the ISS in Space Descent VR, an out-of-this-world virtual reality experience narrated by Tim Peake himself. Use Samsung Gear VR to enjoy a 360⁰ look inside the Soyuz capsule and experience the thrill of being an astronaut.
