No word if a trip through Manchester was scarier than atmospheric reentry
Having spent the last 20 months being lugged around the UK, the Soyuz capsule used to ferry British Astronaut, Tim Peake, safely back to Earth is returning to London’s Science Museum.
The capsule has enjoyed an eight-stop tour of the UK, popping up in locations as diverse as the National Railway Museum in York, Peterborough Cathedral and the Ulster Transport Museum Belfast, as well as visiting locations in Scotland and Ireland.
All in all, the organisers reckon the attraction clocked up 1.3 million visits.
Peake traveled to the International Space Station (ISS) on 15 December 2015 aboard Soyuz TMA-19M and accompanied by NASA's Tim Kopra and Russia’s Yuri Malenchenko.
The gang, expedition 46/47, spent more than six months in orbit and returned safely to Kazakhstan on 18 June 2016.
