Spaceship Bereshit completes maneuver around the moon

The Israeli ship Beresjit successfully completed a maneuver around the moon on Monday morning, just a few days before the moon landing programmed from the ship.

Bereshit, Israel's first spacecraft, is scheduled to land on the moon on Thursday, April 11, about a month and a half after its launch on February 21 (February 22, Israeli time) from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

According to an update published by spacecraft designers and manufacturers, SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries, Bereshit lowered his height above the moon during the maneuver while preparing for landing on Thursday.
