Moscow (EMS). China’s hand is being told in the failure of Russia’s space mission. It is being said that as soon as Luna-25 failed, China’s happiness was clearly visible. He even shied away from meeting Sha in Lan Ching. Experts are telling that China is most happy with the crash of Russia’s Luna-25 spacecraft. Russia had taken China’s help in launching Luna-25 and landing on the Moon. NASA and the European Space Agency have already cut ties with Russia’s Roscosmos because of the invasion of Ukraine. In such a situation, Russia had no way but to take help from China. It is being told that the crash of Luna-25 on the moon is not only a blow for Russian President Vladimir Putin, but also an embarrassment for Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is Russia’s partner in building a base on the moon. The aim of this ambitious mission of China and Russia is to challenge America and its allies in space. The Russian spacecraft Luna-25 was to land on the South Pole of the Moon. The landing site of Luna-25 is in the same area where the space agencies of China and Russia announced the construction of a joint base in 2021.
Chinese media carried a report that Wu Yanhua, chief and chief designer of China’s Deep Space Exploration Project, visited Russia to participate in the launch of Luna-25 and discuss deepening cooperation between the two countries’ space programs. Led a delegation to the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Far East.
When Russia’s Luna-25 mission failed, China quietly shied away from it. Reports of Luna-25 have been sparse in the Chinese media. A news agency did release a short message of only five sentences on Sunday. A former correspondent of a newspaper did write that this failure is expected to blow Russia’s ambitions. He also said that the West should not underestimate Russia just because its lunar program has failed. Luna-25 was the first Russian spacecraft to attempt a Moon landing since the end of the Soviet Union. Space historian Alexander Zheleznyakov pointed out that we have to learn everything again. We must learn how to fly to the moon with confidence.
Bruce McClintock, a senior policy researcher, said Russia’s space program has been stalled by corruption, mismanagement and sanctions.
This is really bad for Russia. It was their long-awaited, almost last, chance to gain any credibility when it comes to outer space exploration. Let us tell you that since the attack on Ukraine in February last year, the Chinese media has underestimated Russia’s role in the lunar base. Unlike Russia, China has been successful in its attempt to outdo others on the Moon. In 2019, China became the first country to land a spacecraft on a far side of the Moon.
