The organization had the most advanced project among the finalists, but still failed to make a deadline. As the race ended without winners, SpaceIL still found a way to give the creator the opportunity to do what he was meant to do. The group will simply not earn $ 20 million even if its accomplice fulfills Google's initial requirements, which include the ability to drive up to 500 meters of lunar surface and transmit HD video and images back to Earth.

The successful deployment of SpaceIL spacecraft confirming the commencement of the two-month voyage of the spacecraft to the Moon ] spend the next few months in orbit around the Earth and then let the moon gravity put it into the moon's orbit. Then it will reduce its orbit until it finally lands on the northern lunar hemisphere somewhere in April. It can be said that the collector will take the scenic route using this method, but SpaceIL is not in a hurry.
According to The New York Times the plane can last for as long as a few days. He will use this time to measure the Moon's magnetic field as he approaches a landing that can shed light on the moon's core, which is believed to be made of iron. The camera also features retro-reflectors installed by NASA that can bounce back the lasers emitted from the Earth to get accurate measurement of the distance between our planet and its natural companion. She will use the agency's deep space telecommunication network to pass the data back to its ground crew. The team also uses the images provided by NASA to find the perfect landing location. NASA Administrator Jim Bridentalina said in a statement:
Congratulations to SpaceIL and the Israeli Space Agency This is a historic step for all nations and the commercial space as we seek to expand our cooperation beyond the low Earth orbit and to the moon
I was in Israel in July and I was very impressed by their commitment to expanding their role in the world cosmic community as we better understand Israel's opportunities and the innovative work of their private sector, we know they will be even stronger between born partner in the future, vital to the success of the expansion of commercial space to the moon and eventually to Mars and beyond. There are great opportunities awaiting Israel and all of us to advance in the space frontier. "
