Snoopy and NASA

The NASA Image of the Day today is shown below. I just wanted to share it because as a kid growing up I was a big Snoopy and Peanuts fan. I never knew there was an official connection between Snoopy and NASA. The picture caption reads:
In 1968, Snoopy was chosen as an official symbol of merit for America's Space Program and to this day, the Silver Snoopy is award to NASA employees who demonstrate excellence in their work. Through the decades, the connections between Peanuts and NASA have remained rich. In fact, the Apollo 10 command and lunar modules were named after Charlie Brown and the lovable beagle.
