If launch is successful , Israel will be the 4th country to land on the Moon, after the U.S.,former USSR and China. – Due to Israeli technology, the spacecraft is the smallest such craft by weight and least expensive.
Israel will take its first step to the moon late Thursday night, as the lunar spacecraft Beresheet launches from the coast of Cape Canaveral, in a mission that, if successful, will place the Jewish state in an exclusive club of nations capable of landing on the lunar surface.
This new Israeli air-to-surface bunker-buster missile can also be used against quality targets, whether stationary or mobile, in areas where the enemy uses countermeasures against GPS systems, and can be fired from a significant distance away, reducing detection & exposure of the host aircraft.
With tensions still high between Israel and Iran a new air-to-surface long-range missile designed to destroy targets deep underground in heavily defended areas has been developed by Israeli defense giant Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.
Dubbed “Rocks,” the innovative missile is being presented this week for the first time at the Aero India Air Show in Bangalore, India. Continue Reading »

A team of Hebrew University of Jerusalem scientists used an award-winning algorithm to identify 27 molecules with the significant potential for the treatment of obesity, fatty liver disease, among other ailments.
In a newly published study in Scientific Reports, a team from Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Institute for Drug Research reports its discovery of 27 new molecules that activate a protein called PPAR-delta, which has the potential to increase physical endurance and trim waistlines by getting muscle cells to burn more fat.
These molecules therefore hold promise for the treatment of fatty liver disease and obesity, among other ailments. Continue Reading »
Using a combination of several cancer-targeting peptides for each cancer cell at the same time, combined with a strong peptide toxin that would kill cancer cells specifically, “We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” says the chairman of AEBi.
A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.
“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park.Continue Reading »

The Israeli company Watergen produces an atmospheric water generating module that can supply clean, cool drinking water from the air to homes & businesses, sporting events, remote towns or villages, and could even accommodate the needs of victims following natural disasters.
A team of international researchers from Harvard and Bar-Ilan University in Israel have discovered the specific mechanism that allows one’s immune system to attack cancer cells in a particularly efficient manner, and most effectively against lung cancer and melanoma.
By Arutz Sheva Staff
A new mechanism for activating the immune system against cancer cells allows immune cells to detect and destroy cancer cells better than before, according to a study recently published this week in the journal Nature.
The study was led by Prof. Nick Haining, of Harvard Medical School, and co-authored by Prof. Erez Levanon, doctoral student Ilana Buchumansky, of the Mina and Everard Goodman Faculty of Life Sciences at Bar-Ilan University, and an international team. Continue Reading »
The startup’s patented prototype scanner, BlueSky, is based on DOSI technology that scientist/researcher Ofir Aharon PhD invented, providing real-time data that shows early deterioration of skin lesions before they become pigmented.
Learning all he could about this deadly form of skin cancer, Aharon came to the conclusion that more than half of malignant melanoma lesions (usually, moles) fail to be diagnosed in the first two years after they appear – at a stage when treatment could be lifesaving. Continue Reading »

Manure (and food scraps) is flushed directly into the HomeBiogas solar biodigester, where it is broken down by bacteria and transformed into odorless methane gas for household use, in a completely sealed ecosystem.
For the millions of people around the world lacking sewage lines or even basic lavatories, the new HomeBiogas Bio-Toilet could provide an answer for waste disposal and energy production all at once.
Flushed with a manual pump using only 1.2 liters of water, the Bio-Toilet does not need to be connected to a water or sewage line and can use graywater.
The waste is flushed directly into the HomeBiogas solar biodigester, where it is broken down by bacteria and transformed into biogas for household needs along with other waste such as food scraps and animal manure. Continue Reading »
The cooperation agreement allows Israel’s nonprofit SpaceIL’s lunar mission access to NASA tools and services, while NASA will have access to the scientific data returned from the magnetometer installed aboard the Israeli spacecraft.
The United States space agency, NASA, signed an agreement on October 3 with the Israel Space Agency to cooperatively utilize the Israeli nonprofit SpaceIL’s commercial lunar mission, expected to land on the moon in 2019.
As a part of the agreement, a retro-reflector from NASA will be installed on SpaceIL’s unmanned spacecraft. This instrument reflects laser beams, which will enable NASA to locate the spacecraft precisely on the lunar surface after the landing. Continue Reading »
