Selfies

Beresheet send us two selfies that instantly became iconic.

The first one was a selfie with the Earth (kadour ha-arets), taken on March 1st, that gave every Israeli goosebumps:

The pannel reads “Am Israel Hai“, which means “the people of Israel is alive” (a classic saying which also happens to be a very popular song).

The second was a selfie with the Moon (yareakh), taken during the descent towards the Moon, on April 11th, 2019:

As someone from SpaceIL remarked: “Beresheet is a millenial, it doesn’t go anywhere without it selfie stick!”

To which¬†someone commented on YouTube: “Police investigate: possible cause of crash, taking selfies during descent”!
