It’s a sad day for Israel. The country’s first ever Moon-bound rover, Beresheet, crash-landed on the surface of the Moon at the time of landing earlier today, thereby ending the mission. According to a tweet by Buzz Aldrin, the control team lost communications with the lander when it was just 150 metres above the surface. Beresheet contained scientific equipment for measuring the local magnetic field and memories of Israel, including the Bible, drawings by children, songs in Hebrew, and a copy of Israel’s national anthem.
