Israel's first moon mission failed from Florida

An unmanned rocket aimed to make history twice by blowing Israel's Berezate spacecraft from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Thursday night: the first private sector on the moon as landing, and the first from the Jewish state.
585 kg Bereisit, which means that "origin" in Hebrew means, 20:45 (01:45 GMT Friday) was deleted, with the Falcon 9 Rocket privately owned by US-based SpaceX company Elon Musk Is the company of
Take-offs live back in Israel with the view of engineers of Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI) control center with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Israel's craft was placed in the orbit of the earth, from which he will start his seven-week journey to reach the moon using his own engine and to touch on April 11 in a large field.
Rocket also has an Indonesian satellite and a satellite of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.
Mission is part of the renewed global interest in the Moon, sometimes called the "Eighth continent" of Earth, and comes 50 years after American astronauts first run on the lunar surface.
"It is in history - and it is live - Israel's goal is #moon and you are all invited to see it," said in a Twitter message of non-profit organization Spasil, who designed Israeli craft.
In addition to national pride, this project, which is not entirely a private enterprise, generates the symbolic significance of creation, and the projection has aroused global interest. The spacecraft itself demonstrates the capabilities that the project has drawn. Its scientific mission is simple and it is planned to stay on the Moon for only two days. Until this point, only China has the proven technology required for soft landing on the Moon.

Israel's success can give birth to a whole host of future lunar and a completely different business model can be made in which the private firm will provide many types of services. Customers will be able to buy a spot on a spacecraft for their equipment - from scientific instruments and communication technology to customers who want to spread the ash of their loved ones on the moon. In the long run, firms can try to reach the moon to produce products, from precious metals to water, which can be used to fuel the rocket or actually set the moon.
The origin, whose weight is just 600 kg (1,320 pounds), and whose $ 100 million price tag compares with billions that have been spent on the former moon missions, had been planned without the backup system in the event of a technical failure. The spacecraft is one meter and half lengthy and 2 meters wide (approximately 5 feet long and 6 and one half feet wide). Its maximum planned speed is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) per second.

It will take the device to measure the Moon's magnetic field, which astronomers still do not fully understand. Apart from this, after the spacecraft land, it will take a selfie from the lunar surface and the flag of the Israeli flag. There is also a time capsule on board with hundreds of digital files, including details about the construction of spacecraft in the genesis and team involved, national symbols, cultural information and other content taken from members of the public.
