The Jews will attempt to land on the Moon today

Recommended Posts



To date, three countries have landed on the moon. Today, that number may become four.


Israel launched its first lunar mission, a spacecraft called Beresheet, on Feb. 21, riding piggyback on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. It spent six weeks orbiting Earth in leisurely, ever-widening circles before slipping into orbit around the moon on April 4. It remained there for a week, preparing for the defining moment of the mission: attempting to touch down softly on the moon's surface.


That moment comes today (April 11), around 3 or 4 p.m. EDT (1700 or 1800 GMT) — the exact time has yet to be announced. The Beresheet mission partners — nonprofit organization SpaceIL and government-owned aerospace company Israel Aerospace Industries — will livestream events surrounding the landing from mission control. You can watch the broadcast on Space.com or on SpaceIL's Facebook page.
