The SpaceIL Lunar Lander is a lunar lander developed by the Israeli nonprofit organisation SpaceIL. It is an entry to win the Google Lunar XPRIZE (GLXP). The SpaceIL Lunar Lander is a lunar lander, which has a propulsion system to enable itself to leave earth orbit and to enter a trajectory to the moon. After landing on the lunar surface, the lander will reignite its propulsion system to move a distance of at least 500 m to satisfy the rules of the GLXP.
