different views on a number of towers in the design of the Miloslavsky Architects office, the most prominent of which is the 100-story "Inter-Cities" tower. Everything is in the "center of interest" in the area of the stock market, between Ramat Gan - Tel Aviv and Givatayim.
First electric train reaches Jerusalem
THE first electrically-hauled test train on Israel’s A1 Link between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem has travelled on the final section of the 57km new line and reached Jerusalem Navon (formerly Hauma) station.
The train travelled on the section between Latrun and Jerusalem Navon, where electrification has now been completed. However, several section of the A1 Link still have to be electrified, and delays in completing this could jeopardise the opening of the line on September 23. The opening date is also threatened by a recently declared labour dispute and the completion of final safety tests by TÜV SÜD, Germany.
A journey time of 28 minutes is envisaged between Tel Aviv Hahagana and Jerusalem Navon, which is about 1 hour faster than using the existing service via the old line to Jerusalem Malha.

Israel plans to land unmanned spacecraft
on moon in February
YEHUD, Israel (Reuters) - An Israeli non-profit group plans to land an unmanned spacecraft on the moon in February in the first landing of its kind since 2013.
The craft, which is shaped like a round table with four carbon fiber legs, is set to blast off in December from Florida’s Cape Canaveral aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, said Ido Anteby, chief executive of the SpaceIL non-profit.
It aims to transmit pictures and videos back to earth over two days after it lands on Feb. 13 as well as measuring magnetic fields.
“Our spacecraft will be the smallest ever to land on the moon,” said Anteby.
Since 1966, the United States and the former Soviet Union have put around 12 unmanned spacecraft on the moon using braking power to perform “soft” landings and China did so in 2013.
SpaceIL was founded in 2011 by a group of engineers with a budget of about $90 million and they had to sacrifice size and operational capabilities for more efficient travel.
The craft, unveiled on Tuesday at state-owned defense contractor Israel Aerospace Industries, stands about 1.5 meters high and weighs 585 kg (1,290 lb). The spacecraft has four carbon fiber legs and fuel takes up two-thirds of its weight.
At 60,000 km (37,000 miles) above Earth the spacecraft will deploy. It will orbit Earth in expanding ellipses and, about two months later, cross into the moon’s orbit. It will then slow and carry out a soft landing causing no damage to the craft.
“The landing is the most complicated part. The spot chosen is relatively flat and the spacecraft has eye contact with Earth for communication,” Anteby said. “From the moment the spacecraft reaches the point that it begins the landing, it will handle it totally autonomously.”
