Russia's Luna-25 Has Crashed Into The Moon: Know Why


Russia's Luna-25 lunar mission has concluded in failure, with the spacecraft losing control and crashing onto the Moon's surface. 

Russian space agency, Roskosmos, confirmed the unsuccessful mission, which aimed to reestablish Russia's presence on the Moon after nearly fifty years. 

The Luna-25 encountered a catastrophic failure during a crucial maneuver designed to position it for landing, leading to loss of control. 

Contact with the spacecraft was lost during the maneuver, preventing any efforts to regain control or alter its trajectory. 

Roskosmos revealed that the spacecraft's orbit became unpredictable, resulting in a collision with the Moon's surface and its destruction. 

The failed mission has shocked the international space and scientific communities, underlining the challenges of lunar exploration. 

Despite search efforts, Roskosmos couldn't reestablish contact or locate the crashed spacecraft.

The Luna-25 failure underscores the difficulties of executing precise maneuvers and maintaining control over space missions. 

The communication interruption occurred around 14:57 Moscow time on August 19, during a critical orbital adjustment. 

The incident serves as a reminder of the inherent risks and complexities in space exploration endeavors.
