Apollo 10 was a spaceflight test plan for the moon landing by Apollo 11. The program was commanded by Edward Baldwin and Gordo Stevens served as the lunar module pilot and Fred Talmadge as command module pilot. They were 8-miles away from the moon and faced heavy criticism for not landing after the Soviets stepped foot on the moon shortly after.

The call sign of the CSM was Charlie Brown, and that of the LM was Snoopy.
