Music box works very well. SNOOPY, CHARLIE BROWN AND APOLLO 10.
On May 18, 1969, Apollo 10 astronauts Thomas Stafford, Gene Cernan and John Young launched from (what was then) Cape Kennedys Launch Pad 39B. Apollo 10 was a complete dress rehearsal Moon landing, without actually making contact with the lunar surface. It was an important mission as Apollo 11 would not be ready to land on the Moon as planned without Apollo 10s run-through.As we remember the 50. Anniversary of Apollo 10, and the later Moon landing of Apollo 11, history shows us that these missions were, in fact, successful.
What many may not know is the relationship between Charles Schultzs Peanuts characters and NASA during this mission and throughout its history. NASA began collaborating with Schulz in the 1960s. As a popular household character, Snoopy became the mascot for NASAs spaceflight safety initiative. Schulz created comic strips of Snoopy on the Moon, helping to inspire excitement about Americas space program. These beloved characters became the mascots of Apollo 10.The command module was named. And the lunar module was named. Because the lunar module was set to skim over the surface of the Moon, it was named Snoopy because it was going to snoop around Apollo 11s future landing site. Therefore, it was also fitting that the command module be named.
When the lunar module rendezvoused with the command module after surveying the Moons surface, astronaut Thomas Stafford said. Snoopy and Charlie Brown sit atop of a console in the Mission Control Center on the first day of the Apollo 10 lunar orbit mission. Was also created during this era and remains to this day.
