Israel’s Beresheet spacecraft is ready to land on the Moon Surface

Beresheet, Israel’s privately funded, engineered and launched spacecraft is all ready to land on the surface of the moon. The Spacecraft has entered Orbit of the moon today after its launch on February 21 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

The spacecraft will now adjust to the Lunar Orbit and land on the surface of the moon on April 11th as planned after reducing the size of the Spacecraft and make a final burn to touch the surface of the moon.

SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries joined together to create the Beresheet spacecraft.

The lunar capture is an historic event in and of itself — but it also joins Israel in a seven-nation club that has entered the moon’s orbit,” said SpaceIL’s Morris Kahn in a statement. “A week from today, we’ll make more history by landing on the moon, joining three superpowers who have done so.”

Superpowers US (1966), Russia (1959) and China (2013) has landed on the surface of the moon and Israel will be the joining the elite group is huge but also the first privately controlled mission from funding, engineering and to launching. The total cost of the mission has been estimated at $100 million which is quite cheap than the usual cost.

Stay tuned with us for the historic day of April 11th when all Israelis will feel proud of the nation and the development of space research.
