Israel’s Impact on the ‘New Space’ Revolution: Q&A with Space Chief Uri Oron

Ax-1: Israel’s space chief Uri Orion answers questions about the ‘New Space Revolution’

Israel is a leader in the field of space exploration and science, just as it is in many other areas.

The country has developed its own orbital rockets called the Shavit (Comet) series. These rockets have lofted many satellites throughout the years. In April 2019, Israel’s Beresheet (In the Beginning) mission tried to land a robotic lander on the moon. Only the United States, USSR/Russia, and China have achieved this feat.
