Russia can hit the bottom not only on Earth: a crater from the fall of the Luna-25 module was formed on the Moon. Photo
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has photographed a new crater on the surface of the Moon. It may be the result of the fall of the Russian Luna-25 automatic interplanetary station, which failed to complete its mission and crashed on the surface of the Moon.
The new images were published on NASA's official website on Friday, September 1. Another fiasco of the aggressor country occurred back on August 19.
Photo of the likely site of the accident, which resulted in the formation of this crater, was recorded by a spacecraft of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).
The LROC team compared images taken before (June 2022) and after the fall.
The new crater has a diameter of about 10 meters, according to the report. It is located at 57.865 degrees south latitude and 61.360 degrees east longitude at an altitude of about minus 360 meters.
"As this new crater is close to the suspected impact point of Luna 25, the LRO team concludes that it was likely formed as a result of this mission rather than a natural impact," NASA clarified.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, Russia has suffered another disaster. Its Luna-25 mission to the moon failed. The aggressor country declared an emergency.
Russia later admitted that their mission to the moon, which was claimed to be a "historic" mission, had completely failed. The Luna-25 apparatus collided with the surface of the Earth's natural satellite and "ceased to exist."
