Israel's maiden moon launch delayed to 2019
The Israeli organization behind the country's first mission to the moon on Wednesday announced a delay in the vessel's launch from December to early 2019.

 

SpaceIL said Elon Musk's SpaceX firm, whose rockets are set to carry the unmanned probe into space, had informed it of "a delay of a number of weeks to the beginning of 2019."

 

SpaceIL stressed that the delay was SpaceX's decision, noting in a statement that tests on their craft, shaped like a pod and weighing some 585 kilograms (1,300 pounds), were proceeding successfully.
