SpaceIL Lunar Lander [SpaceIL]
The SpaceIL Lunar Lander is a lunar lander developed by the Israeli nonprofit organisation SpaceIL. It is an entry to win the Google Lunar XPRIZE (GLXP).
The SpaceIL Lunar Lander is a lunar lander, which has a propulsion system to enable itself to leave earth orbit and to enter a trajectory to the moon. After landing on the lunar surface, the lander will reignite its propulsion system to move a distance of at least 500 m to satisfy the rules of the GLXP.
In October 2015, SpaceIL contracted via Spaceflight Inc. a shared launch to earth orbit on a SpaceX Falcon-9 v1.2 rocket launched from Vandenberg.
In late 2017, SpaceIL tris to raise $20 million by the end of the year, from both the public as well as the Israeli government, or else it would be forced to cancel the entire mission.
