Russia’s Moon mission – level 1

24-08-2023 07:00

Russia tries to go to the Moon after many years. But the plan does not work.

Russia’s Luna-25 ship crashes into the Moon. Experts cannot control the landing. There are many troubles. Experts are trying to find out why the landing does not work. This problem makes us remember Russia’s success in the past. But now, the country has problems with its space program. This shows that Russia’s space program is not as good as before.

It is not easy to get to the Moon. When Russia fails, it shows that the country is not as good as China, the United States, and India.

Difficult words: crash (to hit something and break), landing (the moment when a vehicle touches the ground), success (when someone is very good at something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What steps are Russia's scientists taking to determine the cause of the failed landing?
