Watch Moon Landing live starting at 3pm Eastern

Israel spacecraft Beresheet will attempt Moon landing today. Moon Landing expected to start at 3:05 p.m. EST (2005 GMT). [www.youtube.com]

Countdown live now.

The spacecraft is targeting a landing site within Mare Serenitatis (the Sea of Serenity), a vast lava plain on the near side of the moon. Once Beresheet has touched down, it will remain active for a couple of Earth days before the mission ends in the heat of the long lunar day. The Beresheet mission is an offshoot of the Google Lunar X Prize competition, which began in 2007 and challenged teams to rove on the moon's surface. The competition has already announced that if Beresheet's landing goes as planned, the team will win a $1 million Moonshot Award.

Likewise.

I've heard of the competition, but had no idea anybody was this close.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

They did use a (private) Space X rocket to get it off the planet. It was the final part of a launch package Musk put up on February 22. It's been doing gravity boost loops since then. Entered moon orbit April 4.

Are green cheese cigars considered a sweet or savory product? I am having a hard time finding someone local to buy from to help celebrate. Guess I have to make my own.

That was the most boring moon landing ever. Staring at a Powerpoint-Excel spreadsheet. Then cut away to people clapping. Never let NERdS put together a presentation. LOL

The Beresheet spacecraft failed to land on the moon Thursday evening after its main engine failed.

The landing process started at 10:05 PM Israeli time. The craft was supposed to touch down on the lunar surface approximately 20 minutes later, but appears to have crashed.

Floppo Better luck next time.

Oh, it LANDED.... It just wasn't what at least Navy pilots call a "good landing". A "good landing" is one where you can use the airplane again.

Some of you may notice a burning smell.





That’s the brains (using the term loosely) of 4chan trolls overheating with the influx of conspiracy theories about what really happened.

If you notice a neighbor or coworker missing, they may be among those locked in place by competing theories regarding all moon landings being fake and knowledge that Israel must be up to something.

They get to try all over again. Would they have reused that craft somehow?
