Opening of the “Soyuz” exhibit took place at the Science Museum of London

Soyuz TMA-19M is the first flown, human-rated spacecraft to be acquired by the United Kingdom. It is the spacecraft that took the British astronaut Tim Peak to the International Space Station (ISS) and then returned safely to the Earth. On January 26, 2017 the capsule was opened as part of the Science Museum Group’s space technologies collection Ian Blatchford, Minister for Business, Energy and Strategy Greg Clark, the Head of the RKK "Energy" Vladimir Solntsev, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation Veneamin Kaganov and Ambassador of the Russian Federation Alexander Yakovenko.

Flight Tim Peak’s Principia mission to the ISS has become a grand event for the UK. Tim became the second astronaut with the British flag on his gear; before him, Helen Sharman flew into space in 1991. Tim has become the first astronaut in the British history to go out in open space, demonstrate the operation of a remotely-controlled robot from space, and run the London Marathon in weightlessness.

Head of the Science Museum, which houses the lander, said that it is a great honor to receive a part of the spacecraft, which flew a British representative. The capsule was repaired, but traces of the re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere are still visible. It became one of the central exhibits of the "Space Age" exhibition at Science Museum in London.

The lander spacecraft "Soyuz" with Briton Tim Peake, Russian Yuri Malenchenko and American Timothy Kopra landed in the steppes of Kazakhstan in June 2016.
