Israel sends dishwasher-sized spacecraft to the moon


Israel’s unmanned craft is small, weighing only 140 kilograms (310 lb.), & will be fitted with 9 computers and 8 cameras.

If successful, the landing of the first private craft on the moon will win the Israeli group SpaceIL, a $20 million Google LunarX Prize.
