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.
