Tim Peake's spacecraft on display at Peterborough Cathedral

An exhibition featuring astronaut Tim Peake's space capsule has opened to the public at Peterborough Cathedral.

The Soyuz capsule endured temperatures of more than 1,500 degrees celsius and travelled at 17,000 miles an hour during its journey to and from the International Space Station.

The exhibition features Tim Peake's spacesuit and a virtual reality experience of the module's descent back to earth.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a virtual reality ride of the re-entry.
