To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA

When: Nov. 2-April 20 2013

NASA, Snoopy, Colorado Springs and Charles M. Schulz: Let's connect the dots. Snoopy, featured in Peanuts comics by the legendary Schulz, was chosen in 1968 to be the mascot for NASA's safety program. A year later, one of the Apollo 10 lunar modules was named after the canine caricature. In the 1950s, Schulz briefly lived in Colorado Springs, which is still the site of Space Foundation headquarters. This is a brief sketch, but you'll find more at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum (215 S. Tejon St., in its To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA exhibit, which opened Saturday and features Snoopy prints, memorabilia and comics relating to space. Admission, as always, is free. — Celine Wright
