Soyuz Capsule

This is the Soyuz capsule in orbit on its way to the International Space Station. It consists of three modules that can be seperated. First is the descent module, the one in the middle. This is where the crew members sit during launch and descent. A periscope (the green thing underneath) is attached to it to view the earth from the spacecraft. The spacecraft is controlled from here as well. Then there is the Orbital module, the one up front. This is where the accommodations for the crew are during their mission. Finally there is the service module, the one in the back. This module has the solar panels attached to it. It also contains the fuel and the instuments as well as the engines. This model is small and can be put on a desktop or other place for decoration.
