The 1'i- ton moon probe apparently crash-landed on the moon late Wednesday night after the Russians announced in advance they would try the "elements" of a soft landing system, leaving them a chance to gloss over any apparent failure. "The launching of the auto malic state Luna-5 is another step in our movement on thr path for a man to reach the moon," Red Star said. , The article detailed the "serious engineering prob'oms" that must be overcome in a soft landing the pull of the moon' gravity, the difficulty of turning on the retrorocket braking sy? tern in time, correction of lasi minute course mistakes and thr actual braking of the moonship to a feathery landing. "To exercise the soft landing of apparatus on the moon it i' necessary to slow down the speed of its fall with a brakinr system," Red Star said. "B u t this is not the most difficul* part of the task. The main thing is to work out an automatic system of guiding the landing." j This left Western observers in ' the position of being able only to speculate on the apparent; failure. I A terse, 60-word announcement by the official Tass news agency was the only statement which followed the landing of the 3.000 - pound probe late Wednesday in the Sea of Clouds region of the moon's surface, i Heavy advance publicity that Russia would soft-land the instrument - laden "Luna - 5" or: the lunar surface and thus take a vast lead over the United States in lunar exploration had accompanied the launch. | When it landed, Tass reported the time (3:10 p.m. EDTl and added: "During the flight'ties said today four of fivei and the approach of the station j Americans killed in the battle' to the moon a great deal of In-j »f Song Be were slain during! formation was obtained which a Viet Cong attack on a firs* is necessary for further elabor-'aid station.
