I don’t know what will happen to my life on the next Sunday

Apollo 16 Successfully Splashes Down (27 April 1972) — The Apollo 16 Command Module (CM), with astronauts John W. Young, Thomas K. Mattingly II, and Charles M. Duke Jr. aboard, splashed down in the central Pacific Ocean to successfully conclude their lunar landing mission. The splashdown occurred at 290:37:06 ground elapsed time, 1:45:06 p.m. (CST) Thursday, April 27, 1972, at coordinates of 00:43.2 degrees south latitude and 156:11.4 degrees west longitude. A point approximately 215 miles southeast of Christmas Island. Later the three crewmen were picked up by a helicopter from the prime recovery ship USS Ticonderoga.

We had an easy time with [Russian Armour]. On the other hand we had a lot of trouble with Russian fighters… My gunner, Unteroffizier Kramer, can take credit for a deed that was probably unparalleled on the Eastern Front. That is, he succeeded in shooting down a Russian fighter with the tank cannon [8,8cm KwK 36 L/56]… Kramer, upset by the unrelenting nuisance of these guys, elevated his cannon along the approach route. I talked him in. He took a chance and pulled the trigger… The Russian crashed behind us.
