SpaceIL's spacecraft set to land on the moon in April is about 5 feet tall with a diameter of 6.5 feet. "Its mission is to transmit photos and video of its new home and conduct scientific measurements", said SpaceX.
It will use that time to measure the moon's magnetic field as it approaches for landing, which could shed light on the moon's core that's believed to be made of iron.
Once deployed, the spacecraft will enter a gradually widening Earth orbit that will eventually bring the probe within the moon's gravitational pull, setting the stage for a series of additional maneuvers leading to an automated touchdown. The entire mission cost about $100 million-quite cheap for a lunar mission.
Beresheet will travel approximately 4 million miles on its journey, circling the earth multiple times to gain speed before it slingshots toward the moon. Temperatures on the moon are extreme, with the daytime heat reaching about 100 degrees Celsius and the nighttime chills dipping to minus 173 degrees, and the budget lander isn't equipped to deal with the sweltering heat of a lunar day. It is also the first private rather than government effort with funds coming from private donors including Morris Kahn and Sheldon and Miriam Adelson. Up to this point, the moon has been a destination that only wealthy and powerful nations could reach.
