On re-entry Casper hit the atmosphere at an altitude of about 400,000 feet above the earth and at a velocity of nearly 25,000 miles per hour.

  1. Outstanding episode! In fact an outstanding 15 episodes for Apollo 16.
    I like the way you manage to find something new to describe when these Apollo missions have become (almost ) routine. This time it was splashdown and recovery. Well done.
    I also liked the description of the family and friends at Charlie’s house.
    Cheers from the bottom LH corner of Australia.
