“The launch of the Luna-25 spacecraft, taking into account the astronomical ‘window’ in 2023, is scheduled for July 13,” reports the state corporation TASS.
The automatic interplanetary station “Luna-25” will start the Russian program for exploration of the earth satellite by automatic means. The lander is intended to test soft landing technology and complex research on the lunar surface in the southern circumpolar region.
Luna-25 is the first lunar space probe to be launched in our country since 1976. The flight to the Moon will take 4.5 to 5.5 days, depending on the specific launch date.
