Tim Peake’s Soyuz spacecraft acquired by the Science Museum

The Science Museum announced yesterday the acquisition of the Soyuz spacecraft used to deliver and return British astronaut Tim Peake to the International Space Station.

Tim Peake’s Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft joins the Science Museum’s world-class collection of space equipment, which includes the Apollo 10 Command Module, the only such Apollo spacecraft outside of the USA.

I’m looking forward to a return visit to the Science Museum, in 2017, to see this new addition to their space collection. Here’s are photo’s of the Apollo 10 [on left], and the Soyuz TMA-19M [on right].
