Space Descent VR with Tim Peake

Begins 24 March 2017. Booking now open.

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 like the one that brought him home.

Using the latest state of the art VR technology, 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.

Narrated by Tim Peake.

Speaking about Space Descent VR Tim said:

'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. Science Museum visitors are going to experience something that truly is very close to the real thing!'
Tim Peake's Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft is on display for free at the Science Museum from 26 January 2017. Find out more

We recommend booking Space Descent VR tickets early as demand is expected to be high. No online booking fees.
