Have you heard that Israel is sending an unmanned spacecraft named “Bereshit” to the moon this month?
The brainchild of SpaceIL a private organization in Israel, this space craft will make Israel one of a handful of countries to land on the moon. The spacecraft will be carrying a nano size Torah (Bible), an Israeli flag and some important scientific research equipment.
Hear my latest BITE SIZE interview with Dr. Mom, Yael Schuster who wrote a special children’s book about “Beerie” the spacecraft and designed a children’s plush toy together with SpaceIL.
The spacecraft is set to launch from Cape Canaveral on Feb 18, 2019. Hear all about it in this podcast originally aired on the BITE SIZE show with Yoni Pollak on the Nachum Segal Network.
