Race for Moon Resources Has Begun While ISRO's Chandrayaan-3 is on course to make a soft landing on the lunar South Pole, Russia's Luna-25 Moon mission encountered problems over the weekend and crashed on the Moon's surface, thus ending the nation's first Moon mission in 47 years in failure. Now, after the Luna-25 crash, the head of Russia's space agency Roskosmos has said that the race to explore and develop the moon's resources has begun and Russia must remain a player despite the failure. This is not just about the prestige of the country and the achievement of some geopolitical goals. This is about ensuring defensive capabilities and achieving technological sovereignty, he said in his first public comments after the aborted mission. Read his comments in detail here.
