But in the end, India failed. The Indian Space Organization recently confirmed that in the early morning of September 7, 2.1 kilometres from the moon, the Indian Lunar Ship II lander Vickram suddenly lost contact with the ground. This undoubtedly shows that India's trip to the moon failed. India's dream of becoming the world's fourth lunar landing country has also come to naught.
India's planned landing on the moon's Antarctic is more difficult than that of China, the United States and Russia. It is not surprising that India has failed to land on the moon. Before that, however, the performance of Lunar Ship 2 was quite normal, and many people thought that India might really be the first country in the world to land on the Antarctic Moon. So some netizens asked why the Indian Lunar Ship 2 landing on the moon failed.
After some analysis, experts said that the engine is the defect of the Indian detector. In the process of decelerating soft landing, the precise control of engine plays a very important role. The reason why Chang'e-4's lunar landing in China was so smooth was that a large variable thrust engine was used, which could adjust the thrust at will between 1500N and 7500N.
However, among the Indian Lunar Ship 2, five liquid fuel engines with 800N thrust are the main thrust force. Even with eight 50N attitude control engines surrounded by them, they are not as good as one of the engines of Chang'e 4 in China. In such a combination, it is really difficult for an Indian engine to adjust its thrust very well. But even if India fails this time, it has taught the world a good lesson.
Even if it can support the lunar landing this time, the power supply in the later period is the biggest problem.
