Animated Video Of Rocket Booster Crashing into the Moon Circulated as Russia’s Luna-25

A few days ago, a fascinating video started circulating on social media, depicting a dramatic scene of a rocket booster moving speedily towards the moon’s surface, crashing, and erupting into flames. The old video began resurfacing with claims that this is the live footage of Russia’s Luna-25 moon mission, which supposedly crashed recently. Many users such as @ApexNewsIndia, @chawla_paras, @gopal_singh935, and @jkssb_aspirants, shared the animated video with misleading claims.

Upon closer examination, it becomes evident that the viral video is, in fact, an animated creation, lacking any connection to actual events. The origins of this misleading clip trace back to 2022 when an enigmatic rocket crash on the moon stirred intrigue. It’s important to note that the animation was developed in response to this event and is not a depiction of the real Luna-25 mission.

Further investigations led us to an article [archive] by the European Times which revealed the genuine story behind the video. Astronomers made a significant discovery as they identified a rocket body on a collision course with the moon in the latter part of the previous year. The impact ultimately occurred on March 4, 2022, leaving a noticeable crater in its wake. Interestingly, this crater turned out to be a dual formation, comprising an 18-meter diameter eastern crater atop a 16-meter diameter western crater.

The peculiar double-crater formation defied expectations and raised questions about the rocket body’s composition. Unlike the typical distribution of mass in a spent rocket, concentrated at the motor end, this rocket seemed to possess significant masses at both ends. The dual nature of the crater became a potential indicator of the rocket’s unique characteristics.

Notably, this occurrence marked the first instance of a rocket body impact on the moon leading to the formation of double craters. Previous instances, such as the craters left by Apollo missions, exhibited irregular shapes and larger dimensions. This data proves instrumental in planning future human and robotic lunar missions, including NASA’s Artemis program aimed at expanding human presence in space.

Conclusion: A Tale of Animation and Reality

The animated video circulating as Russia’s Luna-25 moon crash is a creative work from 2022, distinct from the actual events surrounding the mysterious rocket impact on the moon’s surface.
