S72-35901 (25 April 1972) --- Astronaut Thomas K. (Ken) Mattingly II, command module pilot of the Apollo 16 lunar landing mission, floats in space outside the spacecraft during his trans-Earth extravehicular activity (EVA), as seen in this reproduction taken from a color television transmission made by a color TV camera mounted on the Command Module (CM) hatch. Mattingly used hand-holds and a foot restraint to hold himself in position, and he was secured to the spacecraft by an umbilical tether line. During his EVA, Mattingly made an inspection of the Service Module's (SM) Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) bay, and retrieved film cassettes from the Panoramic Camera and the Mapping Camera. The trans-Earth EVA occurred at ground elapsed time of 242:55, and 2:49 p.m. (CST), Tuesday, April 25, 1972.
