At this speed, Luna 25 left Earth’s orbit in one hour.
According to Roscosmos, Luna 25 will be landed on the Moon’s south pole and probe the lunar surface ice which will be essential for human survival. Another important experiment will also be carried out by Luna 25 which will send back to Earth some great updates of the Moon’s south pole. Chandrayaan 3 is also launched with the aim to investigate the south pole of the Moon and will send some reports to Earth where ISRO scientists will investigate and observe the future of the Moon and whether humans can live there or not.
