Luna-25 enters lunar orbit
Posted: Sat, Aug 19, 2023, 11:46 AM ET (1546 GMT)
Russia said its Luna-25 lander has entered orbit around the moon. The spacecraft, launched last week, performed a maneuver Wednesday to go into lunar orbit ahead of a landing scheduled for this Monday. Roscosmos said the spacecraft was working well but provided few other details about the status of the mission. Meanwhile, India's Chandrayaan-3 lander separated from its propulsion module in lunar orbit Thursday after that module placed the lander into a low lunar orbit earlier this week. The lander is slated to make a landing attempt next Wednesday. Both spacecraft will try to land in the south polar region of the moon.
