Description : This flight was an attempted lunar sample return mission. After successful insertion into Earth orbit, the block D rockets of the SL-12/D-1-e Proton launcher failed, leaving the spacecraft in geocentric orbit. The design was similar to the other Luna sample return, or "Moonscooper" missions. The craft consisted of four spherical fuel tanks and nozzles, thrusters, and landing legs set in a 4 meter wide base. A spherical sample return capsule and ascent stage sat atop the structure. A robot arm to collect samples (perhaps with a drill) and then place them in a hatch in the return capsule was attached to the base. After failing to leave Earth orbit, the mission was designated Cosmos 305.
