Israel's Beresheet spacecraft crashes on the moon

Science
We're about to start the landing process. We're going to orientate the spacecraft in the right direction. So that the engines are pointing to break us in our maneuver towards the moon. We're now about 850 kilometres from our landing site. With an altitude of 25 kilometres, we hope we've measured it correctly, we think we've done that to an accuracy of up to 100 metres which is amazing at the range we are at right now, and the whole process will take us about 21 minutes. So we are now orienting the space craft, reviews the engine on the circumference of the space craft in order to get it in the right direction In about a minute or two, we were start firing the main engine to start breaking the spacecraft. We have a few seconds at the beginning of the process where the spacecraft will decide by itself if everything is okay. If not it aborts the landing and continues in its orbit. If it decides everything is okay, we're in a non return point. We're in the landing process, there's nothing more we can do. One minute to landing. [UNKNOWN] We have passed the point of no return, we are in the landing process. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] So we are in the braking process, the braking process is working well. We can see the spacecraft slowing down. You can see the velocity as we are slowing down. And the spacecraft is doing exactly what it's supposed to do right now. [FOREIGN] [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] So this wonderful selfie picture is on the background of the moon as we are approaching the landing site. [FOREIGN] Thanks to the communication with the NASA, with JPL communication network It is possible to bring the pictures online. [FOREIGN] We currently have a problem in one of our initial measurement units. We lost telemetry for a few moments, and now we've got telemetry back again. [BLANK_AUDIO] We seem to have a problem with our main engine. [BLANK_AUDIO] We are resetting the spacecraft, try to enable The engine [FOREIGN] [FOREIGN] [FOREIGN] We have the main engine back on [APPLAUSE] But it's not, no no [FOREIGN] [FOREIGN] The main engine is back on, but we've lost communication with the spacecraft. We have a failure in the spacecraft. We unfortunately have not managed to land successfully, we are the 7th country to orbit the moon and the 4th to reach the moon's surface and it's a tremendous achievement up to now. Well we didn't make it. But we definitely tried and I think that the achievement of getting to where we got is really tremendous. I think we can be proud. [APPLAUSE]. [BLANK_AUDIO] If at first you don't succeed, you try again. [APPLAUSE]
