Russia's lunar spacecraft, Luna 25, has officially entered the Moon's orbit and has shared the first pictures of the far side of the lunar surface, which is permanently invisible from the Earth.

Roscosmos shared the image in a Telegram post on Thursday. In the image, the Zeeman crater on near the south pole of the Moon on the far side is visible. The crater is not visible from Earth but it is of great interest to researchers according to the space agency. Interestingly, the first image of the far side of the Moon was taken by the Soviet Luna-3 mission, which could be thought of as a distant predecessor to the Luna-25 mission.
