This Day in History

On April 15, 2012 at 2:20 a.m., the Titanic sank into the North Atlantic. The massive  ship, carrying 2,200 passengers and crew, had struck an iceberg. More than 1500 people went down with the ship because of a shortage of lifeboats and inadequate emergency preparations.

 On April 16, 1972, Apollo 16, the fifth of six U.S. lunar landing missions, was successfully launched on a journey to the moon. This trip involved three full days on the moon and use of the Lunar Rover to retrieve moon rocks.  It returned to earth on April 23.
