IF you have ever dreamt of being an astronaut you should make one giant leap towards York’s National Railway Museum.

Just landed is the Soyuz capsule that blasted British astronaut Tim Peake to and from the International Space Station.

Visitors can follow in Tim’s space boots by taking part in a virtual reality experience which mimics the astronaut’s fall to earth.

Bosses at the NRM hope young people who come to see the spacecraft and experience the VR game will be inspired to think of engineering as a career.

But it sounds like great fun too.
