Plan to land Israeli spacecraft on moon

SpaceX запустит израильскую станцию на Луну

According to reports, a non-profit group in the Jewish state is planning to land on a moonless unmanned spacecraft on the moon on February 13, 2019, which can be used only for soft landing on the moon surface by the US, Russia and China Joining in three countries.

SpaceIL and the state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries presented the new spacecraft, which took eight years of collaborative efforts, and $95 million to build the smallest aircraft to date.

"When the ship comes to a point which will be landing on the moon, it will work in fully automatic mode". If successful, Israel would become the fourth country to land a craft on the moon, after the USA, the Soviet Union and China.

But not before Merkel and other top officials in the German government had publicly fired back at Trump's breakfast diatribe. Navy Admiral James Stavridis said in an interview with host Vassy Kapelos on CBC News Network's Power & Politics Thursday.

The project began as part of the Google Lunar XPrize, which offered United States dollars 30 million (25 million euros) in prizes to encourage scientists and entrepreneurs to come up with relatively low-priced moon missions. SpaceIL's president, Morris Kahn, has provided about $27 million.

An Israeli organisation announced plans today to launch the country's first spacecraft to the moon in December, with hopes of burnishing Israel's reputation as a small nation with otherworldly high-tech ambitions. "Apparatus with a diameter of 2 meters and a height of 1.5 m and weighs 600 kg, and landing on the moon he will weigh 180 kg".

"I am filled with pride that the first Israeli spacecraft, which is in its final construction and testing phases, will soon be making its way to the moon".

It's not clear how many (if any) Blockbuster stores have survived outside the U.S. She was shocked to learn that her store will soon be the only one in the country.

Following blast off, the spacecraft will separate from the launch rocket at an altitude of 60,000 kilometres (37,282 miles), and will begin orbiting Earth in elliptical orbits.

The spacecraft's design and development process began in 2013, two years after Yariv Bash, Kfir Damari and Yonatan Winetraub founded SpaceIL and registered for the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition. When it reaches the right altitude, it will ignite its engines and reduce its speed to allow the moon's gravity to capture it. "When the rocket is launched into space, we will all remember where we were when we landed on the moon". The measurements are intended for research conducted at the Weizmann Institute of Science-UCLA. Considering the smaller size and fuel capacity, the vehicle will not take a direct route towards the moon, which lasts four days, but instead will orbit the Earth to reach its destination.
