Israeli Spacecraft ‘Beresheet’ Sends New Images, Video To Earth On Way To Moon


Fresh images and video were transmitted to Earth from the Israeli spacecraft “Beresheet” as it makes its way to the moon, announced SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries on Sunday.

SpaceIL and IAI engineering teams, based in Israel, have downloaded new images and videos from the spacecraft. The photos and videos were taken by the spacecraft at different heights and times.

One of the videos includes a sunrise from the spacecraft’s viewpoint—the Earth can be seen hiding the sun from the spacecraft, and then exiting the same shadow created by the Earth and the sun’s exposure. This process creates a kind of sunrise image.

“Beresheet,” named after the first word and the first book in the Torah (meaning “in the beginning”), lifted off from Cape Canaveral on Feb. 22.

If it succeeds, it will be the first Israeli spacecraft to land on the moon, as well as the first privately owned craft to do so.




  1. America did this stuff in the ‘60’s. We used the the word groovy,that means a moon thing. Way over by there. This episode is groovy. Please don’t confuse with gravy or gravity.

  2. The truth is they don’t fly up with rockets (as NASA is trying to convince you) because the extreme radiation of the Van Allen Belts makes it impossible for a rocket to pass, but with spaceships which they’ve been using to get to Mars. Quite a huge difference. Read up on spaceships. Very interesting.

  3. Don’t be surprised if they turn out to be the second landing on the moon
    – not the first. They may have been preceded by a Chabad House!
