India had to launch a missile today to send a vessel to the surface of the moon, this is the fourth country that has done this if it succeeds. But with the remaining 56 minutes of countdown everything stopped because of a "technical smile". It's hard to get to the moon. The Apollo program stays higher every day. The last man on the moon was Jin Chernan in 1972. The United States not only managed to collect twelve people to the moon surface and vice versa, but they did it on six separate missions. The Soviets tried and failed to go to the moon, leaving an inheritance of disaster that we may never know about the whole story. No one else has attempted until recently, as China has unloaded the Rover in 2013.
The space race between the Soviets and the United States was remarkable for several reasons, of course, and perhaps most remarkable for the Soviet Union, since this country first person in space less than two decades after it was devastated by World War II war. Each country was starting at zero, but the Russians started from less than zero. India's ambitions have been apparent for some time, and the new smile comes after an Israeli nonprofit organization that crashed into the moon in April. On Saturday, 50 years have passed since Neil Armstrong made his famous landing, and nearly 47 years since Cernan made it.
India's failure is a good reminder that this is difficult.
"I was on alert and around and watched what was happening with the hawk's eyes," says Palava Bagla, a prominent journalist who attends the launch in Satish Dhawan. Space Center near Chennai. A beautiful moon shone through the clouds and begged the rocket to come to her. But then there was confusion. Everyone was trying to figure out what had gone wrong. The excitement was very high. "Finally, the Indian scientists announced that nothing was detrimental, but that the expected release had to be postponed because the" technical obstacle "was discovered when a missile was filled with cryogenic fuel. They were studying printouts and printouts, they said on Monday morning, and would provide more information as soon as they received it.
The mission of India is called Chandrayan-2, or Hindi for the "moon vehicle." The South Pole of the Moon, where there is ice beneath the surface. Still, it is likely to happen, even though the Indian Space Research Organization – the government-sponsored launch group – can not say.
That the US put a dozen men on the surface of the Moon with computers with exponentially less power than the iPhone is the best thing we ever did.
