It provided the power to get the spacecraft all the way to the Moon, but it also took Beresheet on its final descent. This moment got kids, educators and parents to talk about the meaning of success, not being afraid of failures, persistence, and determination.

After five minutes, Beresheet struck the velocity that was flawless, and the engineers burst into applause, congratulating each other with hugs and handshakes.

Monica Grady, professor of planetary and space science at Open University, said it would be "looking at the landing site really closely". Just as the moon renews itself every month, disappearing and then becoming revealed yet again - so too does the Jewish people know ups and downs, periods of light and darkness.

"We will try again", Netanyahu said.

Israel hoped to become the fourth country to do this.

Gallet said 'two-thirds of the roofing has been ravaged'. "It took about 100 years to build the building", he said. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire which may be linked to renovation work.

The failure was a disappointing ending to a 6.5 million-kilometer (4 million-mile) lunar voyage, nearly unprecedented in length, that was created to conserve fuel and reduce price. The spacecraft hitched a ride on a SpaceX rocket launched from Florida in February.

Beresheet, whose name is Hebrew for the biblical phrase "In the beginning", had travelled through space for seven weeks in a series of expanding orbits around Earth before crossing into the moon's gravity last week.

Beresheet will land on a plain of lava, if all goes according to plan. He stated in a live stream that there was a failure in the craft and they couldn't land it successfully.

President Reuven Rivlin hosted dozens of youngsters at his official residence. "We must complete what we've started" Kahn said. "True, not as we had hoped, but we will succeed in the end".

NASA has made its Deep Space Network available to transmit data and has installed a small laser retroreflector aboard the lander to test its potential as a navigation tool.

The craft also carries a "time capsule" loaded with digital files containing a Bible, children's drawings, Israeli songs, memories of a Holocaust survivor and the blue-and-white Israeli flag.

Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin expressed his regrets "for what nearly was" and tweeted: "Never lose hope-Your hard work, team work, and innovation is inspiring to all!"

Its origins lie in the Google Lunar XPrize, an worldwide challenge offering $20m for the first privately developed spacecraft to land on the Moon.

The contest ended in March 2018 with no victor.
