The Israeli private lunar lander launched a few days ago aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 has suffered a glitch en route to the Moon... apparently a scheduled maneuver was aborted due to a computer reset, and problems with the star tracker have also shown up.

Here's hoping they get back on track and can successfully continue with the mission...

Just goes to show it's not as easy as we made it look in the 1900'S :o

Sounds better when I say it that way. :lol:
