Nose to Nose: Apollo 10 mission commander Thomas Stafford has a friendly encounter with the well-known beagle “Snoopy.” The famous hound from “Peanuts” cartoon fame served watch over NASA’s Manned Flight Awareness Program and also was honored by the Apollo 10 crew who named their Lunar Module after him. The Command Module, of course, was named after “Charlie Brown.” Photo was taken at Kennedy Space Center in May 1969.
