In our latest installment for TLV1 Radio, ISRAEL21c meets one of the founders of SpaceIL, an ambitious new Israeli project seeking to send the world’s smallest unmanned capsule to the moon.

Founded in 2010, SpaceIL aims to win the prestigious Google Lunar X Prize competition, land Israel’s first ever rocket on the moon – becoming the fourth country in the world to do so — and inspire a whole new generation of children to explore space research.

It’s an ambitious goal. ISRAEL21c associate editor Viva Press talks to Kfir Damari, cofounder of SpaceIL, to find out if it’s really possible.
