The first Israeli spacecraft, called “Bereshit” (Genesis in Hebrew), failed to moor through motor problems and communication with the control center was lost, according to the BBC.The goal was to take photos and experiments.

Only missions of space agencies from the former Soviet Union, the United States and China have been able to reach the Moon.The mission cost around 100 million dollars and paved the way for future low-cost monthly explorations.

Named “Bereshit,” the probe was launched on February 22 from the American base Cape Canaveral in Florida.The 585-pound engine was sent into space using a Falcon 9 rocket launcher from American SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk contractor.

The probe performed several elliptical orbits around the Earth before heading for the Moon, where arrival was scheduled for April 11th.It is the first probe developed by a private organization, SpaceIL, in partnership with the Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI), one of the largest Israeli defense industry companies.
