Peterborough Cathedral is delighted to announce that it has won a nationwide competition to host Tim Peake’s Soyuz spacecraft – Soyuz TMA-19M – and a Space Descent VR experience.
It is also expected that Tim Peake’s own spacesuit will also be part of the display, as well as the parachute used in the spacecraft’s return to earth.
The Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft was used by Tim Peake for his mission to the International Space Station in 2015–2016.
Entry to the Tim Peake’s Spacecraft exhibition, presented by Samsung and the Science Museum Group, is free of charge.
The Space Descent VR is a unique virtual reality adventure that brings the experience alive using Samsung Gear VR technology. This will be available to visitors aged 13 and over, and guests will be charged around £6.
