The Mission

WATCH  how BERESHEET will orbit the Earth in elliptical orbits and will travel 6.5 million kilometers - the longest distance ever travelled to the moon. During these orbits, the she will raise its orbit around Earth until it reaches the proximity of the moon. When she is in lunar orbit, about 10 days before landing, she  will orbit it until the appropriate time and an autonomous landing process will begin. The route will take about two months until the expected landing on April 11, 2019.
