Another Apollo Epic

Another epic chapter in the history of man’s exploration of the moon was written by John Young, Charley Duke and Ken Mattingly with their Apollo 16 spacecraft systems. Apollo 16 surmounted a variety of operational problems to complete successfully the first exploration of the lunar highlands, provide man with his longest and most mobile working period on the moon’s surface and gather an increasingly rich harvest of scientific data.

Yak-40 Certificated in Italy

Hanover—Yakovlev Yak-40 was awarded its Italian type certification last month and the West German federal aviation agency is expected to make a similar award this month. The Italian certification was the first for the aircraft by a Western country and followed a long period of negotiations on Western versus Russian construction standards.

Increased Mobility Aids Surface Activities On Apollo 16

Houston—Apollo 16 Astronauts John Young and Charles Duke missed a full three days on the moon by just 58 min. But while they were there they got around on the surface better than any lunar landing crew before them. The mobility of the Apollo 16 crew was directly attributable to the long hours Duke and Young had spent inside their ILC Industries space suits practicing on earth for their lunar sorties.
