The CEO of the Russian space agency Roscosmos Yuri Borisov identified the cause of the recent crash of the Luna 25 spacecraft on the moon, with a malfunction in accelerometers.

Borisov said at a press conference: "The patch engine did not stop working based on information from the device that shows changes in speed, and the reason is that the accelerometers are not turned on."

Borisov said experts were studying the causes of the accident and the investigation was scheduled to be completed by the end of September.

The Russian space agency Roscosmos recently announced that the Russian Luna 25 vehicle crashed after colliding with the surface of the moon, after it deviated from the moon's orbit set for landing on the dark side of it.
