Examining the history of Apollo 10 and the Peanuts characters’ role both in that flight and in the NASA Manned Flight Awareness safety program, this exhibit shows the cartoon's involvement with NASA beginning a year earlier than the 1969 flight of Apollo 10 when the creator of the cartoon was approached by NASA with a request to use Snoopy as their safety mascot. The exhibition also contains an interactive space where visitors may: help Snoopy traverse the moon by building and testing a lunar rover, create a comic strip about launching from Earth and landing on the moon and climb into Snoopy’s doghouse and navigate through space.
