If the thrusters were too powerful, then it can't be our control system not fast enough to control the navigations. It can't be just the thrusters. [assume: 1/6th gravity means it requires faster controls]

100 m/ sec 2.1km to go.. fast braking period.. nothing heard. That is pretty fast to land w/ balloons(if) and cushions. I thought 59.8 m/sec. But it is very fast.
