Race to the Moon! Will ISRAEL be country #3?
I have always wondered who will be the next to land on the moon. My parents remember vividly when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon in 1969 and said, “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.” As a student and now a teacher of science, I hope to inspire the next generation of engineers who will create rockets to take us to the places of our dreams.
It seems that a team from Israel may be the next to touch down next on the moon. (From the website http://www.spaceil.com/)
“Our mission is to become the first to successfully launch, fly and land a small robotic spacecraft on the Moon, operate it across the lunar surface and transmit video, images, and data back to Earth by the end of next year. By doing this Israel will become the third nation on the moon!” Learn more about SpaceIL on their site: http://www.spaceil.com/
