The organization had the most advanced project among the finalists, but it has not yet been able to make the deadline. Although the competition ended without winners, SpaceIL clearly still found a way to give its shot a shot to do what was intended. The group simply does not win $ 20 million, even if its vessels meet the original Google requirements, including the ability to drive up to 500 meters on the moon's surface and transmit HD video and images to Earth.

̵1; SpaceX (@SpaceX) Spend the next few months, rotating around the Earth, and then giving the gravity of the Moon, drag it to the lunar orbit. Then he will reduce his orbit until he reaches the northern hemisphere of the moon at the end of April. It can be said that the landing gear takes a scenic route using this method, but SpaceIL is in no hurry. In addition, the technology is efficient and economical.
According to The New York Times a passenger can only take a few days. He will use this time to measure the magnetic field of the Moon when it comes to landing, which can shed light on the core of the Moon, which is believed to be made of iron. The Lander also has NASA's retro-reflectors, which can abandon Earth-based lasers to obtain an accurate measurement of the distance between our planet and its natural satellite
. . She will use the deep space telecommunications network agency to transfer data back to their ground team. The team also used images provided by NASA to find the perfect landing location. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein stated in his statement:
"Congratulations to SpaceIL and the Israeli space agency. This is an historic step for all countries and the commercial space, as we seek to expand our cooperation beyond the Earth's orbit and on the Moon
In July, I was in Israel, and was very impressed with their commitment to expanding their role in the global space community, as we better understand Israel's opportunities and the innovative activities of their private industry, we know that they will be even more powerful international partner in the future is vitally important for the successful expansion of the commercial space to the moon and, eventually, to Mars and beyond.There are stunning opportunities that are waiting for Israel and all of us in moving the outer space.
