Chandrayaan-3 Moon Landing: Win for a “New India”

It’s only the fourth country ever to manage a successful lunar landing



group of people gathered around a large projector screen with a spaceship on it

India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission had to do one incredibly difficult thing: touch down on the moon. When it did, the cheers at mission control in Bengalaru could be heard in Washington and Beijing, Moscow and Tokyo, and on 8 million video screens, where coverage of the landing was streamed live on YouTube by the Indian Space Research Organization—ISRO for short.

Voyager 2: Nasa loses contact with probe after sending wrong command

Last month, the spacecraft - exploring the universe since 1977 - tilted its antenna to point two degrees away from Earth after the mistake was made. As a result, the probe has stopped receiving commands or sending data.



This why most space crafts crash when they set measurements in Standard but transmit it as metric.

Last month, the spacecraft - exploring the universe since 1977 - tilted its antenna to point two degrees away from Earth after the mistake was made.

As a result, the probe has stopped receiving commands or sending data.

However, a carrier signal from the spacecraft was picked up on Tuesday during Nasa's regular scan of the sky.

The space agency said the signal, which it likened to the probe's "heartbeat", confirmed Voyager 2 was still broadcasting, as engineers had expected.

Nasa said it hopes communication will resume when the probe is due to reset in October.

Not a NASA launch, and it's not a NASA site.  Elon said a while back he didn't believe a flame trench (pit) would be necessary,

When the launch mount at Boca Chica is repaired and returned to service, it too should have a water deluge system.

For comparison, before today's launch of B7/S24, the most powerful rocket to lift off (it also exploded!) was the Soviet N1 (circa 1969-72).  The N1 had a multiple flame trench design.




I wonder if this idea of having so many rocket engines coupled together is such a wise idea.  Maybe Saturn's approach of five or so bigger engines is the way to go.

Didn't the old NASA launches always toss a couple of Olympic swimming pools of water into the pit upon launch or something?  Why did they stop doing that?
