    I get conflicting news.

    The Indian pm stated their whole mission was entirely domestic project. But I read a poster saying nasa provided assistance with whole mid course guidance, telecommunications and flight monitoring. Until the actual moon landing part.

    Is that true?

    I guess it depends on what they define as domestic. I heard it before on previous launches then I hear they had Russian assistance.

    This guy on his own figured the landing velocity was too fast, what a room full of Indian scientists couldn’t, amazing.

    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!
