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.
