Re: Tim Peake's Spaceship Spaceship Spaceship!!
It's surprising how old this technology is (especially when you consider the the U.S. Shuttle program's been pensioned off) but I guess, like a lot of Soviet era kit, Soyus must of be a reliable workhorse to have survived so long.
I paid a visit to the (U.K.'s) National Space Centre at the weekend where they've a complete Soyus Craft on display. It's surprisingly large, but how they manage to cram in 3 fully space suited crew members into such a small cabin is beyond me...
