Star Trek: The Search For Snoopy

Amateur astronomers, schoolchildren and NASA staff are teaming up to try and locate the Lunar Module known as "Snoopy," which was jettisoned into space during the Apollo 10 lunar mission.

Apollo 10 was a practice run for Apollo 11, which successfully landed on the lunar surface a few months later. Apollo 10 actually deployed its lunar module, which was made up of two parts: the landing section, which was crash-landed onto the lunar surface, and the ascent section, which was jettisoned into space, presumably to assume orbit somewhere within the solar system.
