John Batchelor and I welcomed back Anatoly Zak to discuss the Russian attempt to return to the Moon after many decades with the lander mission, Luna 25 (used to be known as Glob mission). Anatoly described the landing area which was the higher latitudes of the southern hemisphere, the search for water ice, hydrogen and more. He talked about the mission profile to orbit the Moon after arrive for 5-7 days before doing a soft landing with the over in designated landing spot. This was a one segment 11 minute Hotel Mars program.
