Why Luna-25 crashed? Russia explains

On Monday, the chief of Russia's space agency stated that the Luna-25 spacecraft crashed into the moon after its engines failed to shut down properly. He blamed the mishap on the country's decades-long hiatus from lunar exploration. General Director of Roscosmos Yury Borisov stated that the spacecraft's engines were activated over the weekend to place Luna-25 into a "pre-landing orbit," but failed to shut down correctly, causing the lander to crash onto the moon.

The unmanned Luna-25 was scheduled to descend on Monday with the goal of becoming the first spacecraft to touch down on the moon's south pole, where scientists believe there may be significant reserves of frozen water and precious elements.
