New Private Moon Lander

There’s a PRIVATE MOON LANDING TODAY: When (if) humans ever return to the Moon, it may not be by NASA. America’s next Moon rocket is billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule, but a small Israeli company is poised to touchdown on the Moon today. Their robot named “Beresheet” is scheduled to land on Mare Serenitatis (the Sea of Serenity) today, April 11, around 3 pm Eastern time. The private group, SpaceIL, will livestream the lunar landing.
