First private Israel lunar mission to be launched this week

An Israeli nonprofit is hoping to launch what will be the first private spacecraft to land on the moon this week. SpaceIL and state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries confirmed that the landing craft, dubbed Beresheet, or Genesis, will ship from Florida, where it is to be propelled by a SpaceX Falcon rocket launch. The launch is due Thursday in the US.

Who believes that the Vela incident was a Israeli/South African Nuclear Test? Edit: For those of you who didn’t know, a Canberra Jet Bomber aircraft (Americans called it the B-57) had reported two flashes in the desolate south Atlantic. Spy Satellite imagery of the area had confirmed two flashes signature of a nuclear detonation. The professional theory is that the situation was one of two things: An South Africa backed Israeli nuclear test or a meteor impact with the satellite with evidence leaning towards the former.

How do you figure the start & end times for Shabbat on the moon? The sun never sets and you can always see three stars.

I want Owen Benjamin to react to this. He hates both Jews and the moon landing. This is a wet dream for him.
