From the website (http://www.spaceil.com/dev/):

Space IL is a non-profit organization established by a multidisciplinary team of Israeli space enthusiasts to compete with privately-funded space teams in the Google Lunar X Prize. The Google Lunar X Prize is a global race of lunar exploration offering the largest international incentive prize of all time: a total of $30 million.

The challenge is to become the first team to successfully launch, fly and land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon. The team must operate the spacecraft across the lunar surface and transmit video, images, and data back to Earth. Our spacecraft of choice is a nanosatellite carrying the Israeli flag.

We are motivated by a mission: to reinvigorate the Israeli start-up nation by undertaking a challenging task that will ignite the imagination of the country's young generation. Driven by a national mission to advance Israel's scientific and technological fields, Space IL is determined to push ingenuity further than ever before. We are proceeding apace in realizing the objective of becoming the third country in the world to place a flag on the Moon.

We strive to stimulate the young to take an interest in space exploration, propelling us to new frontiers where science and technology are sought-after occupation fields that captivate the imagination of Israelis.
