I think the cutover from rough descent to smooth landing was not even. What could be the reasons?
We need to break down into sequences the smooth landing phase and maybe given public information try to localize the issues.
Oh I wasn't saying it was tumbling, I was just addressing the speculation on this thread by others, that of the four retro-rockets, one might have underperformed, causing the remaining three to overcompensate and making the craft tumble. I was saying that the Doppler plot seems to rule out that possibility.
I agree, the craft doesn't seem to have tumbled during rough descent. Something happened during the transition to fine braking.
BTW, yesterday, on the live streaming site, the caption kept saying (annoyingly) "fine breaking" and I was like "don't jinx it, you morons." Then, after the gloom started, the caption was updated to "fine braking" and I thought "too late, you morons."
