50 Years Ago: The Apollo Lunar Module
“Lunar Module (LM), built by the Grumman Corporation in Bethpage, NY, was the vehicle that would take two astronauts down to the lunar surface and return them to the waiting Command Module in lunar orbit. Before NASA could declare the LM safe for astronauts to fly, however, it had to be tested in Earth orbit without a crew.”

How a cartoon beagle rejuvenated NASA's safety program
“Apollo 10 astronauts were enthusiastic to have Snoopy flying by their side — at least in the form of plush animals and insignia. The mission, which was called a "dress rehearsal" for the Apollo 11 Moon landing, would test all procedures and modules, including a lunar module named Snoopy and a command module named Charlie Brown — the perfect task for a dog committed to safety.”

The floating turd mystery that still haunts NASA
“During Apollo 10 — in which a crewed spacecraft orbited the moon as a dress rehearsal for the first lunar landing — astronauts encountered a deep mystery.”

The path to the moon traced a dangerous line of risk and reward. In a race against time, the Apollo Program challenged our scientific capabilities and redefined the boundaries of humanity. To celebrate NASA’s 60 years of exploration, Seeker is going back in time to relive each Apollo mission, taking viewers on a ride to an entirely new world.
