Know How Russia’s Luna 25 Crashes During Moon Landing, Check Chandrayaan-3 Latest Updates

Luna-25 crashed News: Russia’s first mission to the Moon in nearly 50 years, the Luna-25 probe crashed on the lunar surface on Saturday after an incident during pre-landing maneuvers. Communication with the probe was lost at 2:57 p.m. Moscow time (1157 GMT), the Russian space agency Roscosmos reported.

The probe was scheduled to land near the south pole of the Moon. It carried scientific instruments to study the lunar surface and atmosphere. The cause of the accident is not yet known. Roscosmos said it is investigating the incident.

The Moon missions are part of Russia’s efforts to return to the Moon after a nearly 50-year hiatus. The Soviet Union was the first country to land a probe on the Moon, in 1959.

The space agency mentions that the lander “It has ceased to exist after a collision with the surface of the Moon.”

“The measures taken on August 19 and 20 to locate the ship and establish contact with it were unsuccessful,” it adds.

The Luna-25 probe accident marks a setback for Russia’s lunar program, but it’s not the first time a lunar mission has failed. The United States also experienced a series of failures in its first lunar missions.

Without giving any indication of what technical problems might have occurred, Roscosmos said a ministerial inquiry would be launched into the causes of the accident. Moscow hoped Luna-25 would help re-establish Russia as a leading space power by building on the legacy of its Soviet-era Luna program and marking a return to independent lunar exploration.

It is not yet clear what caused the crash of Luna-25, but it is possible that it was due to technical problems with the probe or with the launch vehicle. Roscosmos has not released any further information about the incident.
