Israel's Beresheet Will Make History With Moon Landing

On April 11th, 2019 Israel will become the fourth nation to ever land on the moon.

The United States, China, and Russia are the only other nations to have ever accomplished the feat. The spacecraft Beresheet (Genesis) was launched from Florida seven weeks ago. The initiative was led by Space IL, a non-profit founded in 2011. Space IL will become the first private company to land on the moon. Naturally, a symbolic Israeli flag will be placed on the moon.

Israel may be a small country but it has big dreams.
