2019: the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s legendary voyage and man’s first step onto the moon…
…And the year that “dress rehearsal” flight Apollo 10’s long-lost lunar module was believed to have been found, half a century after it drifted into the mysterious depths of space. Its NASA nickname: Snoopy.
UNDONE is commemorating this very special year with yet another Peanuts collaboration! From July 17th, join Snoopy and his gang on their shenanigans to the moon and back, zipped up in modern-day orange astronaut suits. This is the launch of PEANUTS: LUNAR MISSION.
So, suit up, strap in, and brace yourself for a journey of a lifetime…
From World War I flying ace to becoming an Astronaut, Snoopy flies you to the moon in our two LUNAR MISSION limited edition models.
Launched on May 18, 1969, Apollo 10 was the “dummy run” for the iconic Apollo 11 lunar landing, a final test of all components and procedures except the landing sequence.
Prior to the mission, NASA contacted Peanuts cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, who was thrilled to have his universally beloved characters as mission mascots.
Come in please...
The Apollo 10 command and service module was thus dubbed “Charlie Brown”, and the lunar module, “Snoopy”. Charlie Brown returned safely to Earth, while Snoopy was jettisoned into perpetual orbit around the Sun, lost for decades… until now!
