Ethan Steve thanked the president and said: "As an Israeli who was born, raised and educated here, it is a great privilege for me to meet the President of the State and share with him the details of the ‘Sky’ mission. The purpose of the mission is to arouse curiosity about how we exist on Earth and enable Israelis to take part in a unique international project in a variety of scientific, technological, and artistic fields with an emphasis on innovation and education. I will take the prayer with me and as it is written in it, from the end of heaven it will return here, to the land, to the house of the President."
