STARGAZERS claim the Apollo 10 lunar module has finally been found after NASA’s probe was left orbiting the moon 50 years ago.

Astronomers believe they have found the famous lunar module from the Apollo 10 mission five decades after it was released into space by the crew. Tom Stafford, a member of the Apollo 10 crew in the 1969 mission, said: “We don’t have any idea where he went. He just went boom and it disappeared right into the sun.” The module , measuring four metres wide, was nicknamed Snoopy and was believed to have ben lost forever.

But now, Nick Howes, a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, told The Times they believe they have found it and that all they need is someone to retrieve it.

He said: “The approximate distance it travels in its orbit is 940 million kilometers. When you are looking for something four meters wide and the last reliable data you’ve got on it is 50 years ago, it’s a bit tricky.”

He said astronomers found an “odd” object thanks to radar data.
