It was the moon landing that brought me here over 12 years ago seems like a life time ago.
With the recent 49th anniversey of the manned moon landing just passed I thought I would share this,
Israel is to place a lander (unmanned) on the moon.The only other countries to dothis are Russia,USA,china and a planned india mission should win.
This launch is scheduled for December on a space x block 5 falcon 9 but I cannot see a scheduled launch with ths payload in DEC 2018.The payload is
secondary so maybe hitching a ride.
The mission is due to land February 2019
There are probably more launch schedules out there but this is the one I use.
The interesting thing for me is this lander will photograph the area and unfurl a flag, and if this is filmed/photoed may show movement in the flag
Without starting the did we/didnt we debate (I believe we went all 6 times) I feel with the advancements in commercial rockets space x,blue origin
(Moon plan) and others I think within a 10-12 year tim frame we will be going for sure
