Apollo 10 Flown Kapton Foil: The flown material contained within this lucite is Kapton Foil taken from the Apollo 10 Command Module 'Charlie Brown' after its return to Earth. Kapton Foil, silver-coloured on the front with a gold backing, was attached to the outside skin of the Columbia in order to protect the fragile craft from the extreme environment of deep space. Because the foil was attached to the outside skin of Charlie Brown, its silver-coloured side was directly exposed to deep space.

NWA 10203 Moon Rock: The moon is constantly hit by meteorites and with no atmosphere and little gravity the larger impacts eject lunar rocks into space. After this impact, this meteorite will eventually be brought down to Earth by the Earth's gravitational pull. Scientists and universities all around the world examine meteorites and compare them with known lunar material, e.g. samples collected during the Apollo missions. The composition of gases and isotopes found is so unique that they can say for sure the material originated from the moon. The encased meteorite was acquired from Meteorite Hunter and Discovery Channel's 'Meteorite Men' T.V. Star, Steve Arnold.

    Apollo 10 was the fourth manned mission in the United States Apollo space program, and the second (after Apollo 8) to orbit the Moon. Launched on May 18, 1969, it was the F mission: a "dress rehearsal" for the first Moon landing, testing all of the components and procedures, just short of actually landing. The Lunar Module (LM) followed a descent orbit to within 8.4 nautical miles (15.6 km) of the lunar surface, at the point where powered descent for landing would normally begin. Its success enabled the first landing to be attempted on the Apollo 11 mission two months later.

    According to the 2002 Guinness World Records, Apollo 10 set the record for the highest speed attained by a manned vehicle: 39,897 km/h (11.08 km/s or 24,791 mph) on May 26, 1969, during the return from the Moon.

    The mission's call signs included the names of the Peanuts characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, which became Apollo 10's semi-official mascots. Peanuts creator Charles Schulz also drew some mission-related artwork for NASA..
