Apollo 10 crew with Charles Schulz
"And we thought 'Snoopy' would be perfect for the LEM, since we had selected Snoopy earlier in the year as NASA's overall symbol of excellence...so we thought by calling it 'Snoopy,' we would thus be honoring all the people who helped build the entire program. But we really didn't think about a name for the command module at first. Then one day - during a simulation - someone, I think it was John Young, said 'Good grief, Charlie Brown,' and we suddenly thought that 'Charlie Brown' would be a great partner for Snoopy in space..."
- Tom Stafford, "Charlie Brown & Charlie Schulz", page 147
