Fingers crossed the Indian and Russian missions succeed and contribute to the betterment of our understanding of space.

Space exploration belongs to all countries and all mankind.

It's interesting that it might arrive before the Indian probe, which was launched so much earlier.

This is a natural sequel:

On 18 August 1976, the Soviet Luna 24 probe landed at Mare Crisium, took samples from the depths of 118, 143, and 184 cm of the lunar regolith, and returned them to Earth. In February 1978, it was published that laboratory analysis of these samples shown they contained 0.1% water by mass.

There's no denying the Soviets made the greatest advancements in space exploration and unparalleled as yet

But not setting foot on another world or sending a probe beyond the solar system. Sometimes your dictatorship heroes are not the ones that come out on top.

Maybe the Russians should focus their efforts on bringing their troops home from their invasion of a foreign land.

Russia an China should get the moon. USA can Keep destruction of most countries on earth.

There is a treaty preventing claiming things in outer space. Also still Putin's War.

India, I can’t find a clean toilet.

That's no way to talk about Russia's peer competitor.

The last time the Indians tried to land something on the Moon it went splat. They are choosing a more circuitous route this time.

It's interesting that it might arrive before the Indian probe, which was launched so much earlier.

China already found water on the moon

so what are their blathering about ?

Nothing comes close to the technical marvel of man walking on the moon. Not to diminish other great achievements, but being the “first” to do a thing by a few months or years is just not comparable to human beings walking on the surface of another body—and coming back safely. Cope.

They intend on bottling moon water and shipping it back to earth to sell to rich people.

Shame what will be bought will really come from the Volga.

Dont trust the Russians while they are invading parts of Europe.
