Lunar lander Beresheet 2.0 planned

Post by brian livesey »

After Israel's failure to soft land Beresheet 1.0 on the lunar surface on April 11, SpaceIL is planning a second lander. SpaceIL chief, Morris Kahn, said, "We're actually going to built a new Halalit ( spacecraft ). We're going to put it on the Moon, and we're going to complete the mission."
Beresheet 1.0 experienced communications and engine problems, that caused it to crash on to the lunar surface The SpaceIL team is already at work planning the new mission to land on the Moon.
