Science Museum

Virtual reality mission that puts students in the pilot’s seat of a Soyuz capsule. For Year 9 upwards.

As the European Space Agency’s first British astronaut, Tim Peake spent six incredible months aboard the International Space Station.

Now, Tim is the narrator on this out-of-this-world virtual reality mission that puts students in the pilot’s seat of a Soyuz capsule—just like the one that brought Tim home from the ISS.

Using the latest state-of-the-art VR technology, students will get a 360° look inside a Soyuz capsule and experience the thrill of being an astronaut retracing the 400km journey back to Earth,
