See the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module, the historic spacecraft that brought Major Tim Peake back to Earth after his mission to the International Space Station.
On 15 December 2015, Major Tim Peake embarked on the Principia mission to the International Space Station. He spent six months orbiting Earth on the ISS, during which he conducted experiments, walked in space and even ran a marathon. On June 18 2016, he returned to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module.
Now, this historic craft is touring the UK and will be on display at the National Science and Media Museum. You can see Tim’s Soyuz capsule right here in Bradford—complete with scorch marks from its re-entry through the atmosphere.
Soyuz TMA-19M is the first flown, manned spacecraft in the UK’s national space technology collection.
