  • The first Israeli lunar spacecraft is to be launched in December from Cape Canaveral Fla

It will be launched via a rocket from Elon Musk's SpaceX firm this December, and it's expected to land on the moon on February 13, 2019.

Israel declared on Tuesday that it will dispatch its first moon mission in somewhere in December 2018, planning to secure a place to be the fourth nation to arrive on the moon, following Russian Federation, the USA, and China.

On July 10, SpaceIL gave the press its first look inside the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) MABAT Space facility in Yehud near Israel's airport, where the nonprofit organization has been collaborating with IAI for eight years to build the 1,322-pound (600-kilogram) spacecraft.

The last spacecraft took a few days to reach the moon, but the SpaceIL will be fired into the oval orbit-a voyage in which two months would take but would fast save on carrying the necessary fuel for the trip. If successful, Israel would become the world's fourth country to land on the moon - a feat only Russian Federation, the United States and China have achieved.

Once the craft lands on the moon, it will photograph and film the area surrounding the landing site, as well as measure the magnetic field of Earth's satellite.

"I am filled with pride that the first Israeli spacecraft, which is in its final construction and testing phases, will soon be making its way to the moon". "When the rocket is launched into space, we will all remember where we were when we landed on the moon". In addition to Morris Kahn in the implementation of the project invested by the Israeli space Agency, and American billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

The project began as part of the Google Lunar XPrize, which offered Dollars 30 million (25 million euros) in prizes to encourage scientists and entrepreneurs to come up with relatively low-priced moon missions. When it reaches the right altitude, it will ignite its engines and reduce its speed to allow the moon's gravity to capture it.

The Times of Israel reported that this is guaranteed Ido Anteby, CEO of SpaceIL, "We will put the Israeli flag on the moon". Over the years, additional partners from the private sector, government companies and academia have joined, including Weizmann Institute of Science; Israel Space Agency; the Ministry of Science, Technology and Space; Bezeq and others. This will be the smallest spacecraft to land on the moon to date.
