Israel based SpaceIL will soon attempt to be the first private organization ever to land on the moon.
A lunar landing is a feat only accomplished by the US, the USSR, and China. Government agencies were needed to operate those missions.
The Beresheet Spacecraft carries digital files including the Torah.
You can watch as it unfolds live on Youtube. The feed will go live at 2:45pm EDT and landing is estimated at 3:25pm EDT.
Now that I’ve been to Antarctica, I guess the only question is how many miles will it cost me to get to the moon?
