SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) engineers have conducted another successful maneuver by Beresheet.

Beresheet is on its way to an elliptical orbit where the farthest point from Earth is at a distance 270,000 km (167,770 miles).
The maneuver was complicated, due to the need to deal with the constraints of the star trackers, but was carried out according to plan. During the maneuver, Beresheet’s main engine was activated for 152 seconds. The next maneuver is planned in another two weeks.
