Adopted in 1968, who is NASA’s official safety mascot?

Answer:

SNOOPY

After the Apollo 1 fire, NASA needed to rebuild its devastated Apollo program. They approached Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts, for permission to use Snoopy as their mascot for safety. Shultz agreed, and granted NASA permission. Starting in 1968, a Silver Snoopy metal pin hitched a ride with every astronaut. In 1969, Apollo 10 selected Snoopy as their official mascot, petting his nose for luck before launch. The flight modules took on names of Peanuts characters, with Charlie Brown as the Command Service Module, and Snoopy as the Lunar Module.
