Israel’s first unmanned spacecraft crashes on Moon

Beresheet, the first Israeli spacecraft to Moon crashed due to technical issues. A report says, “The aim of the mission was to take pictures and conduct experiments and after the former Soviet Union, the United States and China, Israel was expecting to be the fourth country to send a privately funded spacecraft to Moon.”

The unmanned spacecraft approached the final orbit 15 KM from the Moon’s surface after a seven-week journey.

Benjamin Netanyahu, who also made a historic win as the five-term Prime Minister recently, was witnessing the entire episode from the control room near Tel Aviv said that there was no reason to feel discouraged and, “If at first you don’t succeed, you try again.”

Project originator Morris Kahn on a positive note said, “We didn’t make it but we definitely tried. I think that the achievement of getting to where we got is really tremendous, I think we can be proud.”
