Israel’s Beresheet spacecraft reaches the moon, but fails to land

Published by : Global News
The Israeli spacecraft Beresheet reached the moon on Thursday but its planned controlled, or “soft,” landing was unsuccessful, the support team said.

The spacecraft had a number of technical problems during its final descent to the lunar surface, the team said.

The unmanned robotic lander dubbed Beresheet — Hebrew for the biblical phrase “in the beginning” — travelled through space for seven weeks in a series of expanding orbits around Earth before crossing into the moon’s gravity last week.

So far, only three other nations have carried out controlled "soft" landings of spacecraft on the lunar surface - the United States, the former Soviet Union and China.
