Potential landing sites for Luna-25 selected

On August 19, 1976, the return stage of the “Luna-24” apparatus took off from the surface of the moon. Three days later, she delivered samples of lunar soil to Earth. It was the last lunar mission organized by the USSR. Since then, neither Soviet nor Russian vehicles have ever visited the moon.

In the middle of the zero NGOs. Lavochkina began work on a new lunar station. Initially, the project was called “Luna-Glob”, but then its name was changed to “Luna-25” to show continuity with respect to the old Soviet program.

The launch date of Luna-25 has already been shifted several times. Now she is scheduled for 2019. At a recent meeting of the Council of the Russian Academy of Sciences on space, Dr. Sci. Igor Mitrofanov (Head of Nuclear Planetology Department of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences) provided some details regarding the possible landing sites of the mission.

Krate Boguslavsky
The landing of the station will take place according to the scenario of the last Soviet missions, i.e. the device will move in low polar orbit around the moon, and then it will perform braking and vertical descent. But unlike them, "Luna-25" will be sent to the polar region of the moon. The conditions of descent and work on the surface determined the engineering requirements for landing areas: in particular, the slope of the area should not exceed 7%, at least 40% of lunar days should be illuminated by the Sun, in addition to this, a constant satellite visibility from the Earth should be provided.

From a scientific point of view, the choice of landing site was due to the presence in the surface substance of a sufficiently large amount of hydrogen, indicating the presence of frozen water in the soil. For his search, maps made by the LRO were used.

Mancini Crater Area
In total, two possible landing sites for the Luna-25 were selected. The main area is located north of the south polar crater Boguslavsky, having a diameter of 94 km. The reserve area is located southwest of the 96-km crater Manzini, also located in the southern polar region.According to Mitrofanov, the delay in landing time in the reserve area compared to landing in the main will be about two days.
