Luna-25 Lunar Mission: Crash on Moon’s Surface Investigated

The space agency Roscosmos reported on Sunday that Russia’s Luna-25 spacecraft, which was launched with the intention of making a gentle landing on the South Pole of the moon, had collided with the lunar surface. According to the Russian Space Agency, the propulsion maneuver’s divergence between actual and calculated parameters caused Luna-25 to enter an unexpected orbit and crash on the lunar surface.


“On August 19, an impulse was given to establish its pre-landing elliptical orbit in line with the Luna-25 mission schedule. The Luna-25 apparatus’s communication was cut off about 14:57 Moscow time. The efforts made on August 19 and 20 to locate the object and make contact with it were unsuccessful, Roscosmos State Space Corporation said on its official Telegram channel.
