Roscosmos, Russia's space agency, launched the Luna 25 mission from the Vostochny Cosmodrome earlier today. Notably, this marks Russia's first lunar landing attempt since 1976. Luna 25 is built to last a year. The mission could potentially outpace India's Chandrayaan-3 in reaching the lunar south pole even though Chandrayaan-3 was launched way earlier on July 14.
