Israeli nonprofit SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries will launch its mission to the Moon by the end of this year, they announced yesterday.
Ido Anteby, chief executive of SpaceIL, outlined the schedule.
According to the experts, in case everything goes according to plan, the low cost of the spacecraft developed by SpaceIL could set a standard for future missions.
Israel Aerospace Industries and the nonprofit SpaceIL announced Tuesday that they plan a December launch from Cape Canaveral to land on the moon on February 13. "We worked together with the IAI team and SpaceIL team on very sophisticated engineering to get [it] all the way to the moon".
President of SpaceIL, Morris Kahn, the South African born millionaire and humanitarian who contributed around $27 million to the mission expressed in a news bulletin conference: "We are creating history".

Anteby said the SpaceIL craft - bearing an Israeli flag - will disengage from the launch rocket at an altitude of 60,000 kilometers (37,282 miles) and will begin orbiting Earth in elliptical orbits. At a certain stage in its orbit, the spacecraft will reach a point that is near the moon.
The probe, presented in the Israeli city of Yehud, will land on the lunar surface after a long journey during which it will orbit for about two months around the Earth. When it reaches the right altitude, it will ignite its engines and reduce its speed to allow the moon's gravity to capture it.
