Israel’s private spacecraft Beresheet crashed into the Moon on Thursday after being hit with problems during descent, denying the Jewish state a place in the elite club of nations that mastered a lunar landing.

“Small country, big dreams,” the engraving on the spacecraft’s body read, but those dreams weren’t destined to come true.

Beresheet’s engine stopped working around 10 kilometers from the surface, with the vehicle crashing into the Moon at a speed of over 130 meters per second.

Beresheet, which is Hebrew for the biblical phrase “in the beginning,” could have also become the first private spacecraft to land on the Moon.

It was constructed by Israeli nonprofit space venture SpaceIL and state-owned defense contractor Israel Aerospace Industries. The $100 million needed for the ambitious project came from private investors.

The illegal Israeli state has lost communication with the rest of the world since its inception in 1948, so it comes as no surprise. With any luck the moon will be the new chosenland and create another exodus 🙂

The impostor euro-yahoodi has given up looking for its new Moshiach on the earth, so out of desperation is looking to find him on the moon. And they can’t even do that correctly without flushing $100 million down the drain. Even the chicom just landed in January on the far side of the moon with little effort at far less cost. With no worries about lost communications either.

Space research is not flushing $100 million down the drain, especially landing on celestial bodies. As soon we’ll be able to start the automated mineral exploitation of the asteroid belt, it’ll be a near infinite source of wealth for humanity, this will allow to start colonising the Moon, Mars, likely some Jupiter’s moons then start consider spreading onto other solar systems. Humanity has only one planet, there already has been mass extinctions in the past. Dinosaurs ruled the Earth for hundred millions years and they got extinct. Moreover, you probably can’t imagine how many things you may use on a… Read more »

The muslims and the jews which your shithole state of the United Islamic States support, civilization is not only $$$ and materialism.

I’d be curious to see the reaction of his beloved Houthis when he’ll tell them “I f**k your Coran”😜😋

The Muslims are doing a very very great thing for humanity. They are providing land for your Israehelli brothers since they are landless landgrabbers, didn’t you know that? Well, now you know!

Islam snatched more then 60 countries away from Non-muslims…

“It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.”
– Sahih Muslim Book 1 Hadith 271

Hopefully, self-destruction is in the source-code
