The failed Luna-25 mission by Russia resulted in a significant impact on the moon’s surface. Images released by NASA reveal a 10-meter wide crater caused by the spacecraft crashing after encountering issues during its soft landing preparations. Luna-25 was Russia’s first moon mission in nearly five decades, and its failure on August 19 highlights the decline of their once-powerful space program.
On a brighter note, India has swiftly followed up its successful moon landing by launching a rocket to study the sun. The country’s space agency, ISRO, conducted its first solar mission on Saturday. The rocket launch was met with applause from scientists as it left behind a trail of smoke and fire. This significant step in India’s space exploration efforts marks their commitment to further scientific research beyond lunar missions.
