Luna 22 (E-8LS-206) launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome by four-stage Proton rocket into 187 x 226 kilometre orbit around the Earth at 51.5 degrees inclination - its mission, similar to that of to Luna 19, is to enter orbit around the Moon and study the surface
Luna 23 (E-8-5M-410) launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome by four-stage Proton rocket into 183 x 246 kilometre orbit around the Earth at 51.5 degrees inclination - its mission is to enter orbit around the Moon, then land and return a soil sample to Earth
Luna 23 lands on the Moon in the Mare Crisium - it is damaged during the landing and the drill is inoperable so it is not possible to retrieve the planned soil sample from 2.5 metres depth - the mission has to wait for the landing of

Twenty-five years ago, the Soviet Union launched Luna 23, a spacecraft that was to land on the moon, collect ground samples and then return them to Earth.
Luna 16 was the first robotic probe to land on the moon and send a sample back to Earth, though its accomplishment was tempered by the fact U.S. astronauts had already brought back samples during the Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 missions.
Luna 24 would be the last of the Luna series of spacecraft.

 Tracking Luna 24 from Florida and Stockholm
The major difference between Luna 24 and previous two lunar sample-return flights was the duration of the return flight from the moon.
For Luna 20 and Luna 16 the re-entry to earth was along a direct path from the moon to the earth.
In the case of Luna 24 the landing longitude was 6 degrees further east and to null out the orbital velocity of the moon less velocity for the probe was needed, resulting in a slower return trajectory.

Luna 23 was the first modified lunar sample return spacecraft, designed to return a deep core sample of the Moon?s surface (hence the change in index from Ye-8-5 to Ye-8-5M).
While Luna 16 and 20 had returned samples from a depth of 0.3 meters, the new spacecraft was designed to dig to 2.5 meters.
After a midcourse correction on 31 October, Luna 23 entered orbit around the Moon on 2 November 1974.

The Luna programme (occasionally called Lunik) was a series of unmanned space missions sent to the Moon by the Soviet Union between 1959 and 1976.
Luna 1 missed its intended impact with the Moon and became the first spacecraft to fall into orbit around the Sun.
Luna 3 rounded the Moon later that year, and returned the first photographs of its far side, which can never be seen from Earth.

Lunar flyby missions (Luna 3, Zond 3, 6, 7, 8) obtained photographs of the lunar surface, particularly the limb and farside regions.
The purpose of the photography experiments on the lunar landers (Luna 9, 13, 22) was to obtain closeup images of the surface of the Moon for use in lunar studies and determination of the feasibility of manned lunar landings.

The party line is that the Soviet Union is not about to risks the lives of its cosmonauts on flights to the moon, when automated probes can safely retrieve soil from the moon for study on earth.
The launch proceeds as planned at 15:00, but the Block D fails to restart in parking orbit, and is given the cover name 'Cosmos 300'.
The cause of the Ye-8-5 failure is found to be a valve that was stuck open after the first stage burn, resulting in the oxidiser boiling away in the vacuum of space.

Luna 1 (E-1 series) is the first spacecraft to reach the vicinity of the Moon and the first of the Luna programme of Soviet automatic interplanetary stations successfully launched in the direction of the Moon.
On January 2, 1959 Luna 1 became the first ever man-made object to reach the escape velocity of the Earth, when it separated from its 1472 kg third stage.
On 3 January, at a distance of 113,000 km from Earth, a large (1 kg) cloud of sodium gas was released by the spacecraft, thus making this probe also the first artificial comet.
