History was made this past week with Israel’s first launch to the moon – of unmanned spacecraft “Beresheet”. If successful, Israel will be the fourth country to land its flag on the moon. Stay tuned for the next Israeli space launch of our own nano-satellite company, NSLComm, scheduled to launch in May on Israel’s Independence Day!
