Integrating scientific experiments in the Beresheet 2 Mission
As part of the Beresheet 2 Mission, a number of important scientific experiments will be included. A call for proposals for experiments was recently published (link to the Call for Proposals), and we continue to receive proposals. The ideas will be examined by a professional team which will decide which experiments will be conducted as part of the Beresheet 2 framework.
SpaceIL is a non-profit organization that was established in 2011. It promotes education and scientific-technological research in Israel, through its groundbreaking projects in deep space. The Beresheet 2 Program is slated as a technological challenge that will serve as inspiration on a national level that will reach today’s pupils, who may become the scientist and engineers of tomorrow.
Defining the Mission for Beresheet 2
Currently, a team headed by the organization’s CEO, together with content specialists, is working to define the mission for the Beresheet 2 spacecraft. Defining the mission will set a new bar of challenges and will be based on the knowledge, experience and learning from the Beresheet 1 Project.

SpaceIL is an Israeli non-profit organization that sent Beresheet 1, the first Israeli spacecraft into space, and is currently working on the Beresheet 2 Mission.
Beresheet 2 is Israel’s second spacecraft whose development will shortly commence at SpaceIL. Beresheet 2 is the sister of Beresheet 1 spacecraft, which was launched to the moon on February 22, 2019 and was captured by the moon on April 4. It reached its destination on April 11, 2019.
Volunteers for the Engineering Team
The amazing Beresheet 1 Project began as a dream of three daring entrepreneurs; however, it could not have been made possible without the generous support of many donors.
Beresheet 1 was supported by hundreds of volunteers who donated their free time to help the founders on their journey to reach the moon and prove that thanks to resourcefulness, desire and faith, the sky is not the limit.
Now, at the start of a new engineering project, we are recruiting additional volunteers to help us advance the Beresheet 2 Project.
We invite you to submit your candidacy to volunteer in the project and take part in our journey to make the impossible a reality.
