Israel’s first Moonshot is to be launched by SpaceX early Friday by a Falcon 9 rocket from Florida. The rocket will carry Israel’s first unmanned spacecraft to the Moon, for a mission assisted by NASA. The Israeli-made lander will travel through space over the next two months and then try to land on the lunar surface. If the touchdown is a success, it will be the first time that a vehicle made with mostly private money has ever landed on the Moon or any other planetary body. The lander is called Beresheet, the Hebrew word for “Genesis,” and it’s the creation of an Israeli nonprofit called SpaceIL which has raised around $100 for the project. Israel will be the fourth country to land a probe on the Moon. In addition to scientific instruments, the ‘Genesis’ probe will carry an Israeli flag and a copy of the Bible on a small metal disc.
