It has been a few weeks since Israel's first attempt to land on the Moon has fallen into catastrophe at the last moment. The SpaceIL Beresheet launcher crashed to the moon after an engine failure in the final moments of approach, but new information appears to suggest that the engine may have had a good reason to shut down.
Yes, tonight is full moon, but it's not going to be pink  This is the last photo taken of Israel's Beresheet Moon Lander before it was forgotten.
NASA plans to send astronauts to the South Pole of the Moon in five years.
It seems that a manual command was entered into the spacecraft's computer, "the statement reads. "This resulted in a chain reaction in the spacecraft during which the main engine was turned off, which prevented further activation."

During the live stream of the last descent of the probe, everything seemed to work well until the engine was stopped. The fast-thinking SpaceIL engineers gave the spacecraft a command to restart the engine and he successfully fired it again, but the lander crashed onto the lunar surface and failed to recover.
A great finale to Israel's first attempt to land a spaceship on the moon, but SpaceIL does not accept the defeat. The company is already working on what it has called "Beresheet 2.0" and intends to land a probe successfully on the Moon sooner rather than later. Details of this mission and its possible launch date are not yet defined.
