London's Science Museum has today announced that it has acquired Soyuz TMA-19M, which flew the first British ESA astronaut, Tim Peake, to the ISS on Dec. 15, 2015 along with Tim Kopra and Yuri Malenchenko, returning them safely to Earth on June 18, 2016.

It is due to arrive in the UK early next year to go on display. Great news for British space exploration history.

In early 2017, this Soyuz will touch down at the Science Museum after a 1700 mile journey from Moscow where it has been readied for display by the company that made it, RSC Energia. The journey from Russia will take several days, considerably longer than the ten minutes it would have taken to cover the same distance were it still in space.

The museum already has in its collection the Sokol space suit worn in 1991 by Dr. Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut who flew the Juno mission to Mir.

Science Museum, London acquires British astronaut's Soyuz for display

The spacecraft that returned Britain's first professional astronaut to Earth in June will land on display in London next year.

Russia's Soyuz TMA-19M descent module, which touched down from the International Space Station with Expedition 46/47 flight engineer Tim Peake with the European Space Agency (ESA), will go on exhibit at the Science Museum, London in early 2017.

An article in today's British newspaper The Guardian off-handedly mentions that Tim Peake's Soyuz capsule is destined to end-up at the National Media Museum in Bradford, England later this year after a short time in the London Science Museum. First I've heard of this!
Later in the year, it also hopes to lure visitors with the arrival of Tim Peake’s spacecraft – when Londoners have finished with it.

According to the museum's release:
The Bradford-based museum has also confirmed it will host the world-famous Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft that carried Major Tim Peake to the International Space Station (ISS) and back to earth. Visitors will be able to see the space-faring vessel this September when it travels outside London for the first time since it was acquired by the Science Museum Group in 2016.
The Science Museum Group operates both the Science Museum, London and the now-renamed National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.

Per an inquiry with the museum, Soyuz TMA-19M will be on temporary display in Bradford. The span it will be there is still being decided.

Science Museum, London is debuting a companion VR experience to its exhibit of Soyuz TMA-19M:
As the European Space Agency's first British astronaut, Tim Peake spent six incredible months aboard the International Space Station.

Now, let Tim be your guide on an out-of-this-world virtual reality mission that puts you in the pilot's seat of a Soyuz capsule like the one that brought him home.

Using the latest state of the art VR technology, get a 360° look inside a Soyuz capsule and experience the thrill of being an astronaut as you retrace Tim's 400km journey back to Earth from the ISS.

Narrated by Tim Peake.

"It really is breathtaking - and that comes from someone who has spent an awful lot of time using VR systems while training for my first mission," said Peake. "Science Museum visitors are going to experience something that truly is very close to the real thing!"

We recommend booking Space Descent VR tickets early as demand is expected to be high. No online booking fees.

British astronaut's spacecraft launches on UK-wide museum tour

You now have a chance to land the Russian spacecraft that flew the UK's first professional astronaut to and from the International Space Station, both virtually and, possibly, physically.

The Science Museum Group in London, which acquired British astronaut Tim Peake's Soyuz TMA-19M capsule in 2016, announced Tuesday (Sept. 26) that the spacecraft is embarking on a tour of the United Kingdom over the next two years. Sponsored by Samsung, the traveling exhibition features a 360-degree virtual reality (VR) experience that invites visitors to sit in Peake's seat for his December 2015 return from space.

Reviewing the above image, its apparent the Neptune-ME IDS (cockpit main display/control panel) hosted within the touring TMA-19M is just a replica.

I think that is the case with most of the Soyuz on display. Soyuz TMA-14 on display in Seattle is the same; from afar it looks like a real interior but upon closer inspection, it's just a mockup/replica.

It's the shell that counts though.

From the Science Museum Group:
Seven venues across the UK have been selected to host the tour so far, with the remaining venue being decided by a nationwide competition. Entries for the competition are now closed. The shortlist is:
  • Millennium Point, Birmingham
  • Peterborough Cathedral
  • The Forum, Norwich
  • TR2, Plymouth
  • Worcester Cathedral
Shortlisted venues will be reviewed by a judging panel and the winner will be announced at the Museum of Science and Industry in March 2018.

Peterborough Cathedral release
Tim Peake's Soyuz spacecraft to land in Peterborough

Peterborough Cathedral is delighted to announce that it has won a nationwide competition to host Tim Peake's Soyuz spacecraft – Soyuz TMA-19M – and a Space Descent VR experience.

It will be displayed in the Cathedral from Saturday 11th August until Monday 5th November 2018. It is also expected that Tim Peake's own spacesuit will also be part of the display, as well as the parachute used in the spacecraft's return to earth.

The announcement was made at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester on Friday 9th March. It follows an open competition last year to win the opportunity to be the sixth location on the spacecraft's national tour. Five venues from across the country entered a shortlist, including Millennium Point in Birmingham and The Forum in Norwich, but it is Peterborough Cathedral that has been chosen.

The Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft was used by Tim Peake for his mission to the International Space Station in 2015–2016. It will be free to visit during its time displayed in the Cathedral.

The Space Descent VR, which accompanies it in the exhibition, is a unique virtual reality adventure that brings the experience alive using Samsung Gear VR technology. This will be available to visitors aged 13 and over, and guests will be charged around £6.

The Dean of Peterborough, the Very Revd Chris Dalliston, said:

"I'm absolutely delighted that we shall be hosting the Soyuz spacecraft in Peterborough, especially in the year we celebrate the Cathedral's 900th anniversary.

"Throughout the centuries, science and religion have been connected by a shared delight in the created world, a sense of wonder about its origins and destiny, and a desire to seek for the mechanisms and the meaning behind our universe. We hope that many who come to see the Soyuz in our wonderful and ancient Cathedral will begin to get answers to both those questions, and delight in the astonishing inventiveness of humanity and the extraordinary creativity of God."

I paid a visit to the Museum on Science and Industry in Manchester today to view Tim Peake's Sokol KV-2 pressure suit and Soyuz spacecraft.

I can highly recommend any member living in the north west of England paying it a visit before the May 13th deadline after which it moves on to the next venue.

To the extent that one is permitted to do so, would welcome high resolution panned images of this TMA's cabin interior.
