SpaceIL is an Israeli organization, established in 2011, that was competing in the Google Lunar X Prize to land a spacecraft on the moon. SpaceIL successfully launched its Beresheet lander on 22 February 2019, which is expected to land on the moon's surface on 12 April 2019. The Beresheet mission includes plans to measure the moon's local magnetic field to help understand how it formed, and also carries a "time capsule". Beresheet would be the first Israeli spacecraft to travel beyond earth orbit and the first private lander on the Moon. Israel would also become the fourth country, after the Soviet Union, the United States, and China, to land a spacecraft on the moon.
