OREANDA-NEWS  Future Russian lunar stations will have their flight paths changed. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to Anatoly Petrukovich, Director of the Institute of Space Research (IKI) of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).

According to him, after a detailed analysis of what happened to the Russian automatic interplanetary station (AMS) Luna-25, recommendations were developed for a safer and longer flight path to the Earth's natural satellite. New algorithms have also been proposed to more closely monitor the spacecraft's approach to the Moon and its soft landing on its surface. In October, the Roscosmos state corporation announced that changes are possible in the Luna-26 program regarding the flight scheme of the spacecraft of the same name.

The Luna-25 spacecraft collided with the Moon on August 19.
