Event Details

As the only Scottish venue on the tour of this spacecraft, this is an unmissable chance to see the Soyuz TMA-19M used to return to Earth on 18 June 2016. As the European Space Agency's first British astronaut, Tim Peake spent six incredible months aboard the International Space Station conducting experiments, walking in space and even running a marathon.
