Beresheet, the first Israeli spacecraft, currently on course to the Moon, completed another successful maneuver on Thursday.
SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries engineers completed the maneuver at 3:11 p.m. local time, according to a press release.
"The maneuver was complicated, due to the need to deal with the constraints of the star trackers, but was carried out according to plan," read the statement. "During the maneuver, Beresheet's main engine was activated for 152 seconds. The next maneuver is planned in another two weeks."
