SpaceX will send Israel lander to the moon

SFGate Wednesday, 20 February 2019
Israel is heading to the moon. And if it’s successful, the small nation of about 9 million will only be the fourth to successfully deliver a robotic lander to the lunar surface — after the heavyweights of China, Russia and the United States. The mission has been long and the road arduous for Israeli nonprofit SpaceIL, which has, in some iteration or another, been working on the concept of a lunar lander for nearly a decade. Now, that work culminates Thursday when a SpaceX Falcon 9 is scheduled to launch from complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station with SpaceIL’s lander in tow. There is a 32-minute nighttime launch window.
