A British astronomer thinks that NASA's Apollo 10 lunar module could be positioned – fifty years after the crew released a probe around the moon.
According to the moon's module, it is one of the relics that survived the landing of the moon and the scientists want to invent a way of recovering as much as 50,000 centimeters above the lunar surface.
During the mission in 1969, Tom Stafford, a member of Apollo 10, flew to Houston in his Moon's orbit, after losing his crew by eliminating him from his command module.
In 1969, the Apollo 10 team Apolo 10 & # 39; Snoopy & # 39; He sent the module from the Apollo command module, which was never seen again, or thought. Command module is shown here on the other side of the moon

Astronomers Nick Howes, wing controllers, space dynamics experts, and astronauts of the Apollo program have been looking for a lunar year module and find they might find it.
"We have no idea where to go. He just went to Boom and the Sun disappeared," Stafford said.
Snoopy's moon-like module was thought to be permanently lost, even though some quests on the Earth have been intrigued, because one day they could find this little needle in a cosmic pin.
It was only four meters wide, but the longest one Nick Howes, a member of the Royal Astronomical Society, the mythical wing controllers of the Apollo program, space dynamics experts, and astronauts have spent several years computing hunting.
The team has found out that it has now been discovered and, according to The Times, it is someone who needs everything to recover from.

All the other craftsmen used in the Apollo missions threw them to the Moon for seismic experiments or burning them in the Earth's atmosphere.
Snoopy, however, used Apollo 11 as a moon landing practice, Apollo 10 would take place 10 months later in 1969.
The three astronauts took them to these two when they took nine kilometers above the moon. The pair went into the command module again. The mission was successful.
Snoopy has been suspended and has been running in orbit without realistic tracking.
Now, eight years ago, Howes began a project to find the latest surviving module and distributed astronomers around the world to target their telescopes in the moon regions.
Apollo 10's interior. He had a call-up called Charlie Brown, he ran about 500,000 kilometers on his eight-day mission and returned to the Earth at 24,790 mph.

Although she contributed to studying and studying data at schools.
The approximate distance traveling in its orbit is 940 million kilometers. When you're looking for a 4-meter wide gauge, and the most reliable data that has been with us 50 years ago, it's very difficult, "The Times said.
But against the opposites, astronomers seem to have found that this empty space defective looks after an object that looks like it.
A strange abnormal object was roughly the right orbit and the right size. Radar data was completely removed, like an astronomer. It was like we never saw. We are convinced that 99% are, "Howes said.
Apollo 10, astronauts Thomas Stafford, Eugene Cernan and John Young, on May 18, 1969, launched lunar orbital missions, the Apollo 11 moon moon mission trials two months later.
Apollo 10 spacecraft astronauts closed in the parking lot in May 1969. Now a group of 2019 thinks they have found a wide four-meter wide gauge.

However, even the strongest telescope can not see such an object so small. There is a real way to truly check the way of the lunar object mode to go there and take a look.
Howes believes that there is a strong reason for this.
"Recovery of a fully integrated lunar module would be quite unique. The quality of the engineering included in the Apollo program, probably if the power was recovered, could cause some systems to be restored.
"I hope that something like Elon Musk has been developed and captured and retreated."
