NASA has released Snoopy’s updated photos after completing his mission as a Zero-Gravety-Indicator. Here is NASA’s article “Snoopy Returns from Artemis I Mission”.
I made Snoopy’s astronaut costume for the Artemis 1 mission in the summer of 2021. The Artemis finally launched to the Moon on November 16th, 2022 at Kennedy Space Center in FL. The total distance that he traveled from Earth to around Moon was more than 1.4 million miles. It was a very, very…very long journey for him.
I feel like I am Snoopy’s proud momma, doting over my independent grown-up son, and struggling with an empty nest! Just seeing him in pictures makes me happy. It is amazing to see that his body and his astronaut outfit haven’t been damaged at all after such a (literally) stellar adventure. I am very proud of the effort and work quality the team and I put into this project.
Congratulations on your successful mission, Snoopy!
