Beresheet on its Way to the Moon

The Falcon 9 launched as scheduled on Thursday, delivering a communications satellite to geosynchronous orbit and sending SpaceIL’s Beresheet lunar lander to the moon. The landing is scheduled for April 11.

    Congrats to the Beresheet team and SpaceX. That video on TLI departure was as always amazing. Another superior performance by SpaceX, with a great landing out at sea to boot. Those folks really know how to use a planet.

    Congratulations to the whole Beresheet team. I will be eagerly following the mission, especially the landing. It’s scheduled for what would have been my late father’s 110th birthday.
