A roundup of news from around Israel.
Maariv reporter Stav Namer shares her exclusive interviews with Garrett Erin Reisman and Sandra Hall Magnus with The Jerusalem Post.
The Israel Museum’s new exhibit connects the unlikely story of the biblical character Enoch and Israel’s first astronaut, Ilan Ramon.
Education Minister Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday the late Ramon was “a hero of Israel in terms of generosity and light. “
The Ramon Airport was opened last month. We had a look at the flights departing from Ben-Gurion Airport, some of which are slated to take off from the new airport in the future.
“He was cool-headed, modest, sort of a humble hero, not like most macho, Top Gun flyers."
"From space we do not see the earth with political borders," said Kelly, who holds the record for most space flights for an American astronaut.
The theme of this year's "Space Week" will be to commemorate 50 years since man first landed on the moon.
The Ramon Airport is set to handle up to two million passengers a year upon opening with expansion allowing capacity of up to 4.2 million passengers by the year 2030.
Rona Ramon established a relationship with current President Reuven Rivlin, whom she asked to give the address for the laying of the Beit Assaf cornerstone in memory of her son last September.
