Soyuz Simulator experience for 5th class
As part of our unit on Space, 5th class visited the Powerhouse Museum on Wednesday. We were taken on a tour of the museum’s space exhibits and even got to experience what zero gravity feels like.
There were lots of interesting things to see including a replica of the Soyuz capsule which was used recently by the crew returning from the ISS. It was very cramped inside and helped us to imagine how UK astronaut Tim Peake and his colleagues would have felt during their descent back to Earth. After our tour we had time to explore the rest of the Museum and spend lots of time in the Discovery area.
