Apollo 16 was the next to last manned exploration of the Moon.

In April of 1972 I was 13 years old.  I followed the exploits of Young, Duke, and Mattingly from my window into space.   As with previous missions, That window was the family's black and white television.

Perched in front of the television set, I captured images with a Kodak camera.  I also recorded the audio on a cassette tape recorder.

On these journal pages for Apollo 16,  you can view some of those images.  Credit for all photos on this page is mine.
