Snoopy and NASA have reportedly been together for years. Snoopy is the famous and heartwarming character from the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip. He was first sent to the Moon in the year 1969. He later became the world’s first Beagle to land on the Moon’s surface. Nearly 60 years later, Snoopy once again flew to the Moon and set out on a journey with the Artemis 1 mission.
As part of the mission, Snoopy served as the zero gravity indicator on the Orion spacecraft. He also flew around the Moon with the spaceship. As part of the mission, NASA outfitted Snoopy in the Orion Crew Survival System suit. The astronauts will also wear the same orange suit in the future, although it will be larger in size.
Pictures of Snoopy returning to Earth after traveling to the Moon have surfaced. The image shows Snoopy being petted before being placed in his case. Snoopy completed his journey well during the flight of about 25 days. He acted as a zero gravity indicator. NASA has copied this method from the Russian space program. Russian space programs use toys like Snoopy to signal when a spacecraft enters a microgravity environment.
When Snoopy returned to Earth after traveling to the Moon on December 11, he stayed inside the Orion capsule. Orion was thoroughly analyzed by NASA engineers and Snoopy was recently spotted as well. The space agency is excited about the success of the Artemis 1 mission and may launch the Artemis 2 mission between 2024 and 2025.
