TIM PEAKE’S SOYUZ CAP­SULE, PETER­BOR­OUGH CATHE­DRAL, CAM­BRIDGESHIRE

Ground con­trol to Ma­jor Tim… This 900-year-old cathe­dral is the un­ex­pected back­drop to an im­pres­sive dis­play of gen­uine rocket science. See the Soyuz TMA-19M cap­sule that fer­ried Tim Peake to the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion and back – a round trip of some 17,000 miles. The ex­hibit in­cludes the Sokol KV-2 emer­gency space­suit Peake wore dur­ing the launch and re­turn to Earth, as well as the para­chute de­ployed dur­ing the de­scent. A vir­tual-re­al­ity ride that sim­u­lates the land­ing costs £5, (over-13s only), but you can see the hard­ware and snap a space­suit selfie free.
