stuff that’s hard to do (India’s moon landing fails)

India’s attempt to become the first nation to land a spacecraft near the Moon’s unexplored south pole has apparently ended in failure.
The Chandrayaan-2 approached the Moon as normal until an error occurred about 2.1km (1.3 miles) from the surface, officials said.
India’s Space Research Organization (Isro) said it lost contact seconds before the ship was expected to land.
India would have been the fourth nation to make a soft landing on the Moon.
