Tim Peake is your guide for an incredible virtual reality mission that puts you in the pilot’s seat of a Soyuz capsule.
As the European Space Agency’s first British astronaut, Tim Peake spent six incredible months aboard the International Space Station.
Now, let Tim be your guide on an out-of-this-world virtual reality mission that puts you in the pilot’s seat of a Soyuz capsule—just like the one that brought him home.
Using the latest Samsung Gear VR technology, you’ll get a 360° look inside a Soyuz capsule and experience the thrill of being an astronaut as you retrace Tim’s 400km journey back to Earth from the ISS.
The Space Descent VR experience is narrated by Tim Peake and is suitable for ages 13+.
It really is breathtaking—and that comes from someone who has spent an awful lot of time using VR systems while training for my first mission. Visitors are going to experience something that truly is very close to the real thing!
