Russia set for new space mission

MOSCOW: Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, has revealed plans to launch its Luna-25 moon lander mission in midsummer of this year. The project, which would mark the resumption of Moscow’s lunar project after a decades-long hiatus, has seen multiple delays over the past few years.

Speaking to Russia’s TASS media outlet, the Roscosmos press office said, “Taking into consideration the astronomical ‘window,’ the launch of ‘Luna-25’ spacecraft is planned for 13.07.2023.”

Luna-25 would become the first Russian lunar probe since 1976. Developed in the late 2000s, the mission has, however, been put off numerous times since.

Speaking last April, Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that Moscow will “resume the lunar programme.” He went on to note that the plans will be implemented “despite all the difficulties and attempts to interfere from the outside.”
