SPACE: Stars align as Beresheet spacecraft prepares for lunar capture. “Israeli spacecraft on schedule to jump into lunar orbit on Thursday and land on moon’s surface on April 11.”

There’s a nice graphic at the link showing the complexity of Beresheet’s upcoming moon landing.

I also liked this line: “With Beresheet, Israel hopes to become the fourth country in the world to land a spacecraft on the moon, following the US, Russia, and China.” That’s a nation of nine million people going toe-to-toe with the big players.
