April 20th 1972: Apollo 16 safely on Moon after engine crisis. The Apollo 16 mission has landed on thespace_400Moon after a seven-hour crisis that nearly aborted the mission altogether. Astronauts John Young and Charles Duke became the fifth team to step down onto the Moon at 0324 BST (0224 GMT). They landed in the Descartes crater region of the lunar highlands.

A delighted Charles Duke exclaimed, "Contact!" as the lunar module, Orion, touched down. His first comment on looking around him was, "We're not going to have to walk far to pick up rocks."
