7 Reasons Why Chandrayaan-3 Should Soft-land on the Moon

1. Improved throttle control with reduced slewing rate enhances fuel flow regulation to engines.

2. Adjustments made to the algorithms governing thrust management.

3. Implemented a real-time thrust regulation scheme for better descent control.

4. Increased variability tolerance of individual thruster thrust to 90N for redundancy.

5. Introduced a 'Laser Doppler Velocimeter' (LDV) to precisely control fuel flow using reflected light.

6. Lander's rotation speed raised to 25 degrees/sec for quicker position adjustment.

7. Multiple strategies established to handle contingencies, enabling controlled landings even off-track.

The goal is a successful soft landing; failure would be considered a 'SAIL'.
