Science Museum

Retrace Tim Peake’s breath-taking journey back to Earth from the International Space Station with our immersive 360° experience, suitable for the whole family.

Get a 360° look inside a Soyuz capsule and experience the thrill of being an astronaut, while Tim Peake himself narrates his hair-raising trip back to Earth.

Space Descent 360° is based on our popular Space Descent VR with Tim Peake virtual reality experience and utilises 3D projection, making it accessible for little ones.

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!'

After a record-breaking national tour, Tim Peake's Soyuz TMA-19M descent module is now on permanent display in the Exploring Space gallery.
