A team of astronomers are '98 percent convinced' they've found a long lost lunar module that's been floating in space for decades.

NASA's 'Snoopy' lunar module may have been found after 50 years in space

  Fifty years after it was discarded into space, a team of astronomers believes they may have found the "Snoopy" lunar module from the 1969 Apollo 10 mission, according to Sky News.

  NASA's "Snoopy" lunar module was named after the cartoon dog and flew within 10 miles of the moon's surface in May 1969.

  The Apollo 10 mission featuring "Snoopy" and the "Charlie Brown" command module served as a dress rehearsal for Apollo 11.

  Two astronauts flew in the lunar module for eight hours over the moon, then returned to the command module and sent Snoopy on its way into space.

  But now astronomer Nick Howes told Sky News his team is "98% convinced" they found Snoopy last year after analyzing terabytes of radar date.
