NASA Snaps Aerial Photo Of Crash Site After Israels Failed Lunar Landing

NASA says it has captured aerial images of the Beresheet crash site following Israel’s failed lunar landing attempt last month. The spacecraft malfunctioned just seconds before attempting to touch down at an ancient volcanic field known as Sea of Serenity, or Mare Serenitatis. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured the impact site photo on April 22 using a three-imager system.
