Breaking News: Snoopy lunar module from 1969 Apollo 10 mission may have been found

The Apollo 10 lunar module, nicknamed 'Snoopy', is seen during the mission in May 1969

A team say they are "98% certain" they have pinpointed its location, defying odds of 235 million to one to locate it.

The famous lunar module from the Apollo 10 mission is believed to have been found - 50 years after it was released into space.

Named Snoopy after the cartoon dog, the four metre wide module was believed to have been lost forever after the 1969 mission.

It was used as a test run for the Apollo 11 lunar landing, which took place two months after Apollo 10, in July 1969.

Two of the three astronauts transferred into it, reaching an altitude of 50,000ft above the surface of the Moon, before going back to the command module.

After demonstrating the docking manoeuvre, Snoopy was shot off into 900 million kilometres of space.

Nick Howes, a fellow at the Royal Astronomical Society, said he is "98% convinced" he and his team have found it.

But until someone goes and retrieves it "we can't be 100% sure".
