41Paddy posted a topic in Science & SpaceflightWhat is your idea of the N-1 Russian Moon Program failure? How do you think it fell apart? My opinion: 1. The person who led the program had died, and nobody could figure out where to go from there. 2. Lack of knowledge of improving rockets. They were first to space, but their engine development failed miserably after a few milestones. 3. Lack of funding. They ran out of money to develop the program. 4. Design flaws and construction failures. Putting 30 engines on 1 stage? Wires broken everywhere? Fuel tanks not big enough to support it to orbit? Something's going to go wrong...
