Luna-25 is a part of the Russian lunar program, the first Russian lunar mission on-going at the Lavochkin Association, JSC, for the exploration and practical use of the Moon and near-lunar space by automatic interplanetary stations.
The Luna-25 station has been designed using only Russian equipment and the latest achievements in space instrumentation engineering.
AIS Luna-25 was launched on August 11 of 2023 from the Vostochny Cosmodrome by a Soyuz2.1b launch vehicle with a Fregat upper stage that put the station on a flight trajectory to the Moon. On August 20, during the transition to the landing orbit, the station ceased to exist having collided with the surface of the Moon.
