Russia’s ‘Luna-25’ crashes on the moon

Moscow (Russia) – After India’s Chandrayaan-3, Russia also attempted to send a spacecraft to the moon, which failed. The spacecraft ‘Luna-25’ launched by Russia has crashed on the moon. This spacecraft was supposed to land on the moon 2 days before ‘Chandrayaan-3’. But Russia lost contact with it on 19th August and it crashed on the moon the very next day. Luna-25 was scheduled to land on 21st August near the Boguslavsky Crater on the South Pole of the Moon. The spacecraft was launched on 11th August. Russia had sent a spacecraft to the moon after 47 years. Russia had earlier sent the spacecraft ‘Luna-24’ in 1976.
