TIME.CO, Jakarta – Landers moon Russia, Moon-25, began to show activity that earthlings might like. The first images of Luna-25 were taken on Sunday, August 13, 2023 and released on Monday by the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IKI RAS).
Space.com posted a black-and-white photo showing the Russian flag and mission emblem on part of the spacecraft. You can also see two celestial bodies which happen to be the Earth and the moon shining brightly in the darkness of space.
“These images show the design elements of the device against the backdrop of the Earth, where we departed forever, and against the backdrop of the Moon, which we will soon be heading to,” wrote Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, in a statement released today. on Telegram on August 14th.
The Luna-25 mission took off on August 10, 2023 aboard a Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur region, Russia’s far east. This mission marks the first domestic probe sent to the Moon in the history of modern Russia.
While still the Soviet Union, the last lunar mission departed from what is now Russia. Luna-24, as it was called, took off in 1976 and carried about 170 grams of lunar samples. The launch of Luna-25 has experienced numerous delays due to Russia’s war in Ukraine, which has had far-reaching implications for international cooperation in spaceflight.
The departure of Luna-25 was accompanied by allegations of flawed aircraft systems. It’s no wonder there has been some speculation on social media about the status of Luna-25 in the days following its launch. The photos are proof of Luna-25’s health which cannot be doubted and will hopefully remain good until the destination on the moon.
The photo was taken at a distance of about 310,000 km from Earth, according to IKI RAS. The Moon, by comparison, is on average about 384,400 km from Earth. “All spacecraft systems are functioning normally, communication with the station is stable and the energy balance is positive,” IKI RAS wrote in a statement accompanying the photo.
If all goes to plan, Luna-25 will reach the Moon on Tuesday, August 15, 2023 before orbiting Earth’s bright, white satellite for five to seven days. From there, the spacecraft will attempt to land near one of the three craters surrounding the Moon’s south pole. The probe is designed to operate for at least one year.
