Israeli lunar craft sends first photos back to earth

Beresheet’s selfie camera took a selfie picture of Earth on Tuesday from a distance of 37,600km. Australia can be clearly seen in the photo together with a plaque inscribed: “Small country Big dreams.” It is due to land on the Moon’s Sea of Tranquility on April 11.

      I only need the picture of Arab deserted Gaza from above, but not so far as 37,600km, 10-12 km would suffice.

    I, too, agree that photos of such significance be posted. I eagerly await to view them and anticipate, at least this one time, that Debka will honor our requests in this regard. Peace.

    Headline for photos but no photos in the story? Bait and switch. Come on, Debkafile.

    Hopefully, the spaceship is up there looking for a place for the independent Palestinian state.

    Unless this is a “sledge-hammer hint” to the Jewish state’s enemies, Iran in particular:
    it could be just a vainglorious waste of money.
