Israeli Moon Lander Crashes

SpaceIL’s unmanned, privately-funded “Beresheet” spacecraft attempted a historic lunar landing! Unfortunately in the last moments, there were issues with the main engine and they lost communications with the spacecraft, which impacted the Moon. They were able to successfully orbit the Moon.

They lost control of the spacecraft about 150 meters above the lunar surface.
