Museum of Science and Industry

We have created an out-of-this world learning programme to coincide with Tim Peake's Soyuz capsule landing at the museum in March 2018, as part of the national tour of Tim Peake’s Spacecraft presented by Samsung and the Science Museum Group.

On 15 December 2015, Major Tim Peake embarked on the Principia mission to the International Space Station, where he spent six months orbiting Earth. Thanks to extraordinary leaps in communication technology, children across the country watched as he broadcast live experiments, walked in space and even ran the London Marathon.

On 18 June 2016, Tim returned to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module. Now, thanks to the Science Museum Group's partnership with Samsung, pupils can join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a closer look at this historic spacecraft and learn more about the science behind space travel.
