'Snoopy' A long-lost Apollo 10 Capsule adrift in space may have been found after 50 years

'Snoopy' found after 50 years! Wondering what’s that? It’s the lunar module of Apollo 10’s mission, a dry run performed to snoop around closely around the orbit. However, 'Charlie' command module of the same mission returned safely. Astronomers are 98% confirmed that it's Snoopy, but, they can’t be certain until someone gets close to get a radar profile. Next date of Snoopy's closest approach to earth would take 18yrs.
