The first Russian lunar mission by Russia in 50 years will require the evacuation of a community.

According to a local official, Russia will evacuate a community in its far east on August 11 as part of the launch of its first russian lunar mission in nearly 50 years.

The Vostochny Cosmodrome, about 3,450 miles (5,550 km) east of Moscow, will serve as the launch site for the Luna-25 lunar lander, Russia’s first since 1976.

On August 11, early in the morning, residents of the Shakhtinskyi community in Russia’s Khabarovsk region, southeast of the launch site, will be evacuated because the village is located in the location where it is anticipated that the rocket boosters will fall once they split.

“The mouth of the Umalta, Ussamakh, Lepikan, Tastakh, and Saganar rivers and the area of the ferry bridge across the Bureya River fall within the anticipated drop zone,” Alexei Maslov, head of the Verkhnebureinskyi district in the Khabarovsk region, wrote on the messaging service Telegram. There will be an evacuation of the Shakhtinskyi inhabitants.

According to Roscosmos, Luna-25, the first lander to land on the moon’s South Pole, would be sent into space on a Soyuz-2 Fregat launcher.

The development of soft-landing technology, the investigation of the lunar interior, and resource exploration, particularly the quest for water, will be the mission’s primary goals.

On the lunar surface, the lander is expected to work for a full year.
