Israel to touch the moon

  • Israel Set to Land Spacecraft on Moon in Historic First

Kahn said the lunar launch "will fill Israel, in its 70th year, with pride".

SpaceIL is the company, which is planning to launch Israeli-built modules from Cape Canaveral on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in December. This is a huge achievement for us - SpaceIL - and for our partners, Israel Aerospace Industries, who have been with us since day one. The engines will stop working and ship with zero speed will make a soft landing on the moon. "The craft landing area during landing will still be painted with video and video and will even record itself". The spacecraft will orbit the Moon for nearly two months before landing, where it will record and send video and conduct some small science observations using a magnetometer.

This project closed in 2011 as part of the Google Moon XPrize Contest, which offered $ 20 million to check on the Moon.

"We're trying to replicate the Apollo effect in the US", Kahn said, a reference to US Apollo mission that took first humans to the moon in 1969.

Speaking to JNS, Kahn said, "I think this will give us a sense of tremendous pride. It's a national accomplishment that will put us on the world's space map". "Earth is getting smaller", and in the end "humanity's future is in space".

Young Israeli scientists Yarivi Bash, Kfir Damari and Yonatan Winetraub chose to join the fight.

Tour de France Stage 7: Dylan Groenewegen outsprints Fernando Gaviria
Martin finished runner-up at Mur de Bretagne in a Tour stage three years ago. The upcoming seventh stage runs from Fougeres to Chartres.

The Aerospace Industries in Israel and SpaceIL launched the new space vehicle, which took eight long years of collective endeavors, and US$95 Mn to develop the smallest airship till date.

Damari said "As soon as we went deep into the project and more people joined, we implicit its complication". Although the competition ended without a victor, Israel's team vowed to push forward.

Kahn, who contributed them a preliminary scholarship of $100,000, said, "I thought it was a good idea and I asked them, 'Do you have any money?'". The data will be transmitted to the IAI control room during the two days following the landing.

The research, conducted in cooperation with scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, will use a magnetometer on the spacecraft to attempt to understand how the rocks on the moon received their magnetism.

If successful, Israel will become the fourth country to "soft land" on the moon, after the former Soviet Union, the U.S. and China.
