SpaceIL was formed in 2010 by three Israeli engineers who decided to compete for Google’s Lunar X-Prize. With the help of the Israel Space Agency and other organizations in Israel, SpaceIL is creating the smallest spacecraft ever built. The size of a dishwasher, the craft must be able to land on the moon, move at least 500 meters, and take photographs and video from all angles. The prize is $20 million, but the cost of building the spacecraft could reach $100 million. SpaceIL is competing against 33 other groups from around the world, but as of now they are considered one of the top competitors. Learn more on their website.
