Israel’s Beresheet (Genesis) spacecraft may have crash-landed on the moon on April 11, but it made Israel the seventh country to achieve a lunar orbit after an amazing journey of some 4 million miles. It attracted massive media attention and captured the imagination of people around the globe – especially children.

While millions of viewers watched with bated breath as Beresheet transmitted its last two pictures to the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) control room in Yehud before losing its engine and contact, President Reuven Rivlin hosted a watch party at his residence in Jerusalem with some 80 youngsters passionate about science and space.
