Peterborough Cathedral was delighted to win a nationwide competition to host Tim Peake’s Soyuz spacecraft – Soyuz TMA-19M – and a Space Descent VR experience.
The Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft was used by Tim Peake for his mission to the International Space Station in 2015–2016. Tim Peake’s own spacesuit is also part of the display, as well as the parachute used in the spacecraft’s return to earth.
Entry to the Tim Peake’s Spacecraft exhibition, presented by Samsung and the Science Museum Group, is free of charge.
The Space Descent VR is a unique virtual reality adventure that brings the experience alive using Samsung Gear VR technology. This is available to visitors aged 13 and over, and guests are charged £5.
