Daily Briefing April 13: Israel’s man beyond the moon & space-age medicine

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur speaks about an EU unified against Russia; health and science reporter Nathan Jeffay brings COVID updates and promising research

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Health and science writer Nathan Jeffay and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

A space capsule carrying four astronauts, including Israeli Eytan Stibbe, docked at the International Space Station Saturday in the first fully private mission to the station, and Stibbe and his fellow passengers entered the station. What is he meant to do there?

Rettig Gur just returned from a journalists’ trip to the European Union and came back with the feeling that the EU is ready to stand against Russia. Let’s hear more.

Jeffay updates us about the new Israeli study on the effects of the 4th shot in the over-60 crowd.

A new hospital opened up in the Negev and is located at the ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitation Village. Why is this significant?

And finally, Jeffay wrote a story about promising research on a food supplement that may help fight viruses. What is this concoction?
