You know what astronauts were on the Apollo 10, 42 years ago?

On a day like today but 42 years ago, NASA launched the mission to the Moon Apollo 10 manned spacecraft manned by U.S. astronauts Thomas P. Stafford, John W. Young and Eugene A. Cernan in what would be the mission prior to the first descent of humans on the lunar surface. In an eight-day mission, astronauts traveled to the moon and inserted into orbit. Its main purpose was to test the lunar module operation in a similar exercise of descent to only 10 km altitude of the lunar surface without reaching land. Would also take hundreds of photographs of the candidate sites to land on the moon the following ships.
