Embarrassment in Russia: the research spacecraft crashed on the way to the moon

A day before its planned landing, the Russian lunar research spacecraft "Luna 25" crashed onto the moon due to a malfunction that sent it onto an uncontrollable trajectory. With this, Russia's first attempt to land a spacecraft on the moon since 1976 came to an end

The Russian lunar research spacecraft "Luna 25" crashed onto the moon, a day before its planned landing - as reported today (Sunday) in the Russian media. This marks a significant failure for the Russian space agency, which attempted to land a spacecraft on the moon for the first time in 47 years.

According to reports, the Russian space agency lost contact with the spacecraft and reported an "anomalous situation" as the spacecraft attempted to enter the moon's orbit for landing. Consequently, the spacecraft entered an uncontrollable trajectory and crashed onto the moon. Following its landing, the spacecraft was supposed to operate for a year in the southern pole region of the moon, where traces of frozen water have been detected in recent years.

In the official statement from the Russian space agency "Roscosmos," it was stated that "according to preliminary analysis results, due to incorrect parameters of the thrust engine, the spacecraft deviated from its calculated trajectory and crashed onto the moon." Following the mission's failure, the space agency convened an emergency discussion to investigate the causes of the malfunction and assess the situation based on expert opinions.
