“An American Success Story shows Astronaut John Young in April of 1972
as he stood proudly on the moon,” says artist Alan Bean,“but for a while,
it didn’t look like he and Charlie Duke would even land. Orbiting the moon
in their lunar module preparing for descent, a call came reporting an
oscillation in the backup steering system.They knew that this might force
them to return to earth as soon as possible. If the systems failed, the
Apollo 16 and her crew would orbit the moon forever.


Immediately, mission control was alerted. Could they determine if oscillations
would prevent the backup steering system from doing its job? Records were
searched and tests conducted, in less than six hours the results were in: the
mission could continue.We all breathed a collective sigh of relief. John Young
would say later,“It was a cliff-hanger, but the ground crew really came
through, putting us right back in the ball game.”
