Israel’s Moon Launch Delayed To 2019


The Israeli organization behind the country’s first mission to the moon on Wednesday announced a delay in the vessel’s launch from December to early 2019.

SpaceIL said Elon Musk’s SpaceX firm, whose rockets are set to carry the unmanned probe into space, had informed it of “a delay of a number of weeks to the beginning of 2019.”

SpaceIL stressed that the delay was SpaceX’s decision, noting in a statement that tests on their craft, shaped like a pod and weighing some 585 kilograms (1,300 pounds), were proceeding successfully.

SpaceIL did not give precise dates for the postponed launch and landing.

  1. Restore our future Hashem. The moon is too high a sky of good.

    Guilty Israel. We do not have a purpose in space as jews. A failure for the priesthood. It will breed more war and strife. We are wrong.

    Will this not be the chelonei that destroy us? This is wrong.

    The moon image is wrong too. All graven images of the heavens harm Jacob. The idea is to look up and know it is there and keep it in your mind. The photo is a manner of non-religion.
