Tim Peake is your guide for an out-of-this-world 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 state-of-the-art VR technology, you’ll get a 360° look inside a Soyuz capsule and experience the thrill of being an astronaut. Space Descent VR retraces the 400km journey back to Earth from the ISS, and is narrated by Tim Peake.

Tim Peake’s Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft is currently on a tour around the UK, courtesy of Samsung and the Science Museum Group. Find out when and where you can see it.
