About Astronaut Tim Peake’s Soyuz Spacecraft

The Soyuz spacecraft used for European Space Agency Astronaut Tim Peake’s Principia Mission to the International Space Station goes on display at the National Museum of Scotland.

As the only Scottish venue on the tour of this spacecraft, this is an unmissable chance to see the Soyuz TMA-19M; complete with its 25-metre parachute and scorch marks from its re-entry through the Earth's atmosphere.

The spacecraft will be displayed alongside Space Descent VR with Tim Peake, a virtual reality adventure which places you right at the heart of Tim Peake’s journey back to Earth.

Tim Peake returned to Earth in the 1.5-tonne Soyuz TMA-19M descent module on 18 June 2016 after six months orbiting the globe on the International Space Station, conducting experiments, walking in space and even running a marathon.
