Missed it by that much ><.

Israel had an unmanned lander that attempted a moon landing today (yesterday?) that would have made it the 4th country to land on the moon. The spaceship was in final approach when its engine failed to fire. Sounds like it crashed into the moon. Communication was lost.

Israel is 1 of 7 countries to have had a spaceship orbit the moon. Three countries have landed on the moon, U.S., Russia and China.
