Russia’s unmanned Luna-25 spacecraft has crashed into the moon after spinning out of control.

It was Russia’s first Moon mission in almost 50 years.

The craft was due to be the first ever to land on the Moon’s south pole but failed after encountering problems as it moved into its pre-landing orbit.

It was set to explore a part of the moon which scientists think could hold frozen water and precious elements.

Roscosmos, Russia’s state space corporation, says it had lost contact with the Luna-25 shortly after 11:57 am on Saturday.
