    Modi was there so there were probably some that knew.

    Why are they using comms gear that looks like it should belong in the Apollo era?

    At 2.92km (2:21:20) above the moon surface, the display graphic was showing the lander at an upside-down position. From then on, the lander quickly went off the planned trajectory (as shown by the red line) by quite a bit.

    Looks to me a landing control failure of the lander. At no time did lander show itself to have stabilized itself in a vertical position (zero horizontal and vertical speed) for the soft landing.

    I noticed that too when the lander was coming in too steep and you can see the guy has a reaction but then there was applause and he thought everything was all right.

    What I don't understand is why everyone was clapping when the lander hadn't even landed yet?

    I think they were applauding every successful step.

    I just love that. I was pissing myself with laughter! The POTUS knows no humility!

    Just before the lander breaking maneuver, I was watching the discussion in the chat section. Right then I thought I must have missed the landing because everyone was already congratulating each other.

    I think the American does the same during the landing of the Mars Rover.
