Nice advertising, they didn't have to block part of the Earth with it! Soon there will be large neon signs on the moon

Haha, I hope not, but we humans have a tendency to do stupid things, I must admit.

They would have to be pretty large to get any kind of audience, unless we migrate to the moon en masse.
With the pace of our space efforts since the fifties I am not too optimistic in that regard.

Better luck next time.

The spacecraft did get an image of the moon.


“Preliminary data supplied by the engineering teams of SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) suggests a technical glitch in one of Beresheet's components triggered the chain of events yesterday that caused the main engine of the spacecraft to malfunction,” the Mission explained, in a statement released Friday. “Without the main engine working properly, it was impossible to stop Beresheet's velocity. Beresheet overcame the issue by restarting the engine. However, by that time, its velocity was too high to slow down and the landing could not be completed as planned.”

Cool view. It's looking north-east over Hypatia crater:

There were 9 engines/thrusters on the BEREHEET

Main engine based on Leros 2B - 407 N thrust (about 100lbs) using MMH (Monomethyl Hydrazine with Mixed oxides of Nitrogen as oxidizer)

LEROS 1c[6]
Hydrazine / MON
460 N
325

LEROS 1b
Hydrazine / MON
635 N
318

LEROS 2b
MMH / MON
407 N
318

LEROS 4
MMH / MON
1100 N
323[7]
Developed c.2014 for European Space Agency’s (ESA) Mars Robotic Exploration Program[8]

So you think this is fake? I see.

Is the Earth flat, by any chance?
