SpaceX launched an Israeli mission to the moon last night using a 23-story Falcon 9 rocket. The rocket took off from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida and was streamed live on YouTube.
An Israeli nonprofit, SpaceIL, designed and developed the 1,322-pound robot, Beresheet, scheduled to reach the moon around April 4 and land April 11. If the $100 million mission succeeds, Israel will become the fourth country to set a spacecraft on the moon.
