Russia aims to revive the lunar program with the launch of a lander to the moon this July

Russia is poised to reactivate its lunar exploration program, a former Soviet enterprise that ended decades ago. The last in a string of pioneering Soviet robotic moon missions was Luna 24, sending about 6 ounces (170 grams) moon matter returned to Earth in 1976.

Russia’s planned Luna 25 mission is set to begin a string of moon outings that also involve Europe and China. For example, Russia intends to work with China to build the International Lunar Research Station, which is scheduled to be operational by 2035.
