Morris Kahn, the primary sponsor of SpaceIL’s Beresheet spacecraft, announced on Saturday evening the funding of a second Israeli spacecraft, Beresheet 2.0. A new group of donors will fund a second Israeli attempt to land a robotic spacecraft on the moon. The first craft was able to orbit the moon, but then control was lost just 150 meters from the surface and it crashed.
