Beresheet, the first lunar space apparatus of the Jewish state, experienced some technical difficulties on Monday night. A spacecraft maneuver is planned, but the spacecraft has accidentally restarted instead, which has led to automatic deactivation.
SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries, the organizations that headed the projects, are currently exploring the data to understand what happened. The rest of the spacecraft systems work well.
Beresheet successfully completed its first maneuver to the Moon after separating from its launch mechanism and completing its planned Earth orbit on Sunday.
The apparatus will be captured by the Moon when the Earth's orbit around the Earth takes it directly to the Moon (which also travels around the Earth).
Two months later, the shuttle landed in the sea of Serenity on April 11th.
