Space Is… Hard. The Moon Is… A “Hard” Target. Our Condolences — To India.

Sadly, India — like Israel before it — has “lost contact” with its Vikram lunar lander.

The nation had hoped to achieve a soft touchdown, at the Moon’s south pole.

But it has apparently suffered a hard landing, just as the Israeli-backed effort had, earlier this year. We express our sincere condolences, and in the same breath, applaud the vision it took — to mount the effort, in the first place. We learn, and we rise… again.

Onward.
