1st Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Apollo 10 roll engines close up.

This photograph was taken at the Science Museum in London, where the Apollo 10 Command Module—Charlie Brown—has been on display since 1976," says Meaden. "Apollo 10 was once part of the most advanced, complex machine ever built, and its scorched, blasted surface is the physical embodiment of the greatest journey of exploration undertaken by Man. I remember vividly as a child the first time I saw Charlie Brown when it went on public display. Now, nearly 40 years later and a parent myself, it is something I repeatedly take my own children to see."
