Why did Russia’s Luna-25 moon mission fail? – The Asia Live


Russia’s Luna-25 spacecraft crashed before landing on the moon’s south pole, marking a major setback for the Russian Space Agency.

The spacecraft collided with the lunar surface during a hard landing, similar to India’s earlier mission, Chandrayaan-2.

The crash is a major setback for the Russian Space Agency, and scientists worldwide are discussing the potential consequences of the crash.

Russia had planned to make a soft landing of Luna-25 on the moon’s surface, but it has now remained incomplete.

The Luna-25 mission was Russia’s first since 1976, but it failed due to a software glitch and an unexpected engine overfire during the orbit adjustment.

After a technical fault, there was no contact with Luna-25 for about 10 hours. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) announced that Chandrayaan-3 would land on the moon at 6.04 p.m. on August 23.

Russia’s history includes installing the world’s first satellite (Sputnik-1 in 1957) in Earth’s orbit and sending a man into space for the first time in 1961.

The Apollo mission, launched by America, marked the first time humans landed on the moon for the first time.
