"Next time it will turn out". The Israeli moon rover of "Bereshit" broke at moonfall


During lunar landing of the pilotless station there was a failure in operation of the main engine, and then communication was gone. The first Israeli moon rover went to the surface of the satellite of Earth on February 22 the Picture made the Israeli Bereshit spaceship during lunar landing.

"Unfortunately, we did not manage to put the device" — he told. During lunar landing the pilotless station at first faced failure in operation of the main engine, and then lost touch with control center of flight. Oren Lieberman is a correspondent of CNN "The device constructed with attraction of private investments for the sum of 100 million dollars moved to the surface of the Moon with a speed more than 3300 kilometers per hour. To the planned point of landing there were about 120 kilometers. According to the published data of telemetry, then at the device problems began, the situation quickly became catastrophic. In mission control center there came the silence, broadcasting said that "there are suspicions that we did not reach the Moon in the best possible way, information is specified". After a while one of heads of team reported that "unfortunately, we did not manage to fall by the surface of the Moon safe and sound". Despite everything, in the company emphasized that Israel became only the fourth country which reached the Moon. So far the USA, China and the Soviet Union was only successful in soft landing to the surface of the Moon. In case of success of a mission Israel would become the smallest country of lunar club with the most compact lunar program. The Israeli social networks joke that instead of calling the device "Bereshit" (in Hebrew this name of the Genesis, literal translation "at the beginning") it should name Hutspa, that is "Impudence". As a result because of need to lose device weight in it installed few spare systems. It is known that landing is the most difficult task, in its process "Bereshit" broke against the surface of the Moon". Process of landing was watched by the prime minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu. After failure he promised that the country all the same "will land" to the Moon. Here what is told by the ex-deputy of the Knesset, the writer, the journalist Yossef Chagall: Yossef Chagall the ex-deputy of the Knesset, the writer, the journalist "I do not think that it is the reason of the national tragedy, but it is unpleasant, of course. Against the background of elections it would be desirable that it was successful, but it did not turn out. To tell that it was the central event in life of Israel, will be big exaggeration because, first, there was a preparation for elections. Israel is extremely politized country, and elections are a deification of politicization. The reasons will be analysed, but process from start before lunar landing went so exactly and smoothly that I just have no doubts that this program will be continued. I can assume only the purposes, besides commercial, naturally, scientific, political, military and away
