PAYLOAD CAPACITY - TLI (Trans Lunar Injection)

PAYLOAD CAPACITY - TO ORBIT

30 kg

Luna-25 is a project to launch an automatic landing interplanetary station to study the upper layer of the surface in the area of ​​the south pole of the Moon, the lunar exosphere and develop landing technologies and soil analysis.

1. Search for water and volatile compounds in the lunar polar matter, study the elemental and isotopic composition of the surface and upper layer of polar regolith
2. Studies of the plasma and dust components of the lunar near-surface exosphere near the surface, including the interaction of the solar wind with the upper layer of regolith

130 Million USD

1) ADRON-LR - Active neutron and gamma-ray analysis of regolith
2) ARIES-L - Measurement of plasma in the exosphere
3) LASMA-LR - Laser mass-spectrometer
4) LIS-TV-RPM - Infrared spectrometry of minerals and imaging
5) PmL - Measurement of dust and micro-meteorites
6) THERMO-L - Measurement of the thermal properties of regolith
7) STS-L - Panoramic and local imaging
8) Laser retroreflector - Moon libration and ranging experiments

The mission carried 30 kg (66 lb) of scientific instruments, including a robotic arm for soil samples and possible drilling hardware

Planned: 1 year
